Maternal Child Health (MCH) offers 4 parent support programs from pregnancy up to age 3. Nurses or Family Support Specialists partner with families during pregnancy to support healthy pregnancy and birth outcomes and support families in preparing for the new baby. Families can also enroll in services after the birth of their child to support parenting, child development, and assistance in navigating community resources.
Each program provides health and developmental screening to assist with appropriate referrals. Services are often provided in the family’s home, however, during the COVID-19 pandemic, services are provided via telehealth. Each program offers services in Spanish.
