We have resources for common women’s health questions available here.

Breast and Cervical Cancer

Breast and cervical cancer are two of the leading, cancer-causing deaths among women. The best way to fight these cancers is to detect and start treating them early. Unfortunately, a lot of women who are uninsured or underserved do not get screenings as often or at all. CHC is part of the Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program, a national program that provides us with the resources to help enroll and screen women who might otherwise not be getting their regular screenings.null

Prenatal Care at CHC

We offer prenatal services at our Middletown, Meriden, and Clinton sites, helping moms-to-be from the very first pregnancy test through your pregnancy, delivery, and postpartum period. Our goal is to support you and to ensure a healthy pregnancy and birth. Our certified staff use a holistic approach to attend to all of your needs across disciplines, including your dental health.

We offer a wide range of health education and services, including lactation support, childbirth classes, family planning, and diabetes and nutrition education. We coordinate services with Husky applicants for other forms of coverage, including housing and the WIC program. After delivery, we also coordinate postpartum and well-baby care for our patients. Our “Healthy Start” approach to your pregnancy focuses on positive birth outcomes for women and their babies, as well as assessments of medical and social needs, care plan development, care coordination, health education, and connections to services in the community.

Our prenatal services are open to all pregnant women and you do not have to be a CHC access pregnancy care! We accept a wide variety of insurances and have a special sliding fee scale for those who are uninsured. Give us a call today to get started: (860) 347-6971 ext. 3070.
