What is the Prado?

  • The Return home program was introduced by Health Insurance in 2010 and allows mothers to return home sooner after delivery, followed by a midwife.

How does the Prado work?

Can all young mothers benefit from the Prado?

  • Yes, since 2012, this service has been generalized throughout the country. Can benefit women over 18, who have not had complications during their pregnancy, having delivered vaginally a first child born at term. It is also necessary that the baby does not encounter any problem to feed.
  • You can not benefit? Remember that all mothers are entitled to their return home, two postnatal follow-up sessions reimbursed 100% by the Health Insurance, if they are carried out between the 8th day and the 12th day after the delivery. They can take place at home or in the office. Enjoy!
