The goal of PHMDC Pregnancy Services is Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies, Healthy Families.
Public Health provides free help and support to pregnant women through two programs:
- Nurse-Family Partnership Program: Provides frequent public health nurse visits during pregnancy and until the baby is 2 years old. This service is for first-time moms.
