Say "YES" to a healthy start for your baby!
Healthy Start provides maternal and child health
services to improve pregnancy outcomes and help children get a healthy start in
life. Healthy Start offers services for you when you are pregnant or
between pregnancies, and for your baby from birth to age three.
Everyone qualifies for Healthy Start services by saying
"YES" to Healthy Start screenings with your prenatal care provider and at the
hospital at the time of the birth of your child. Healthy Start screenings
are simply a set of questions to determine your need of care for you and your baby's growth and development.
