What is the Buckeye Baby program?

Buckeye Baby consists of four live webinar-based discussions that review different pregnancy-related topics. To participate parents-to-be should be currently pregnant/expecting a baby. You can choose to schedule and attend all four webinars or only participate in the topics that most interest you. During each session, you will be able to ask questions and share ideas with other expecting parents. Individual telephonic sessions are also available as needed, including a scheduled postpartum telephonic session by a nurse or a dietitian/health coach. Click here to learn more. 

During the program year (January through December), employees and spouses have many opportunities to earn points, which can quickly accumulate to help you complete up to four incentive levels. Visit Your Plan for Health (YP4H) for more information on the incentive program.
