The goal of the Perinatal Program Is Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies, Healthy Families.

The Perinatal Services Program provides free preventative health services for pregnant women, postpartum women and their newborns.  Case management services are provided by public health nurses for women at risk for poor birth outcomes.

Questions that a public health nurse can help with are

  • When should I go see a health care provider?
  • How will I get to the health care provider?
  • What will labor and delivery be like?
  • Should I breastfeed my baby?
  • What other community services are available to me?
