Pregnant Moms Program
Head Start's Pregnant Mom program strives to improve the well-being of expectant mothers and their babies, in order to give children a strong start in life. Registered Nurses work with pregnant mothers of all ages to promote optimal birth weight and decreased infant mortality, and to reduce or stop high risk behaviors including smoking and substance use.
Expectant mothers are educated about preventive care including regular prenatal checkups and specialist support for health risks. We also offer counseling for postpartum depression. We also provide parenting education and help families establish a medical home after birth for the child’s check-ups, sick visits and specialty care.

Prenatal and postpartum information, education, and services
