Having a new baby can be one of the most rewarding times of your life, but it can also be one of the most challenging. Having someone to talk to during your pregnancy and/or after you have your baby can make this time easier.


You can have a local community nurse or social worker, called a "care coordinator", meet with you while you are pregnant to help you learn ways to have a healthy pregnancy. The care coordinator can help you find resources in your community to help with your needs.



Are you pregnant or do you have a baby less than one year old?


Do you need help paying the medical bills for your pregnancy care and delivery?


Do you want to know more about caring for your baby or the services available to you while you are pregnant?


Would you like more information about eating healthy or feeding your baby?


Would you like to learn how to reduce the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)?


Do you need help in finding a medical provider for your pregnancy or for your baby?


Do you need transportation assistance to your medical appointments?


Are you pregnant and feeling depressed, have a drug problem, are a victim of domestic violence, want to stop smoking, drinking alcohol, or feel alone?


Are you being hurt by someone?
