Healthy Start Services

What is Healthy Start?

Healthy Start provides services and support needed by pregnant women to have a healthy baby.  Every woman who receives a positive pregnancy test from her health care provider is offered a Healthy Start Risk Screen. Also, when the child is born, an Infant Risk Screen must be completed before leaving the hospital. If the screen shows a risk, a Healthy Start Home Visitor is assigned and offers help.

Some Healthy Start services include:

Home Visitors work individually with moms to determine the right support and services to assure a healthy pregnancy, healthy birth and healthy baby.

Healthy Start Services are provided by your local County Health Department.  For information on how to contact them, please click here.
