Healthy Mothers & Babies

Tomorrow's healthy babies start with today's healthy mothers. The Healthy Mothers and Babies Initiative works to keep women healthy before, during and after pregnancy. The program encourages women who may become pregnant or are planning to have a baby to access prenatal care early and live healthy lives in preparation for motherhood. The program also helps mothers understand the importance of a nutritious diet to ensure a healthy baby and family. This initiative teaches women about the value of maintaining good health at all times, not only when they are pregnant. Examples include:

  • WIC (Women, Infants and Children
    Nutritional Services and Education)
  • Prenatal Care Services and Education
  • Community Health Workers Program
  • Nurse Family Partnership
  • Nassau*NYConnects Help Line (516) 227-8900 - for persons of all ages who require long term care services
