If your pregnancy is high-risk, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) will provide support from a registered nurse on the Boeing-dedicated Clinical Team to help you care for yourself and your baby. You can call 888-802-8776 to connect with a nurse.

An experienced BCBSIL clinician will:

  • Ask questions to determine what support you'll need
  • Answer any questions you have and help you plan your care with your doctor
  • Assist you with managing high-risk conditions, such as gestational diabetes and preeclampsia

With the changes brought about by pregnancy, childbirth and bringing home a newborn, emotional ups and downs are not unusual. The Women's and Family Health team also supports pregnant and post-partum mothers who may be experiencing pregnancy-related depression or anxiety.

To connect with a nurse on the Boeing-dedicated Clinical Team, you can call 888-802-8776, Monday through Friday, 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. PT (8 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. CT).

*To access the Spanish version of the Ovia Fertility, Ovia Pregnancy and Ovia Parenting apps, you must select “Español” as the language preference in your mobile phone or device settings.
