Maternal and Family Child Health Services

The Jackson County Maternal Child Health Program is dedicated to providing services to pregnant women and teens, young children and their families through home visiting programs. A healthy future begins with maternal and child health. Home visiting is a prevention strategy used to support pregnant moms and new parents to promote infant and child health, foster educational development and school readiness, and help prevent child abuse and neglect. visits focus on linking pregnant women with prenatal care, promoting strong parent-child attachment, and coaching parents on learning activities that foster their child’s development and supporting parents’ role as their child’s first and most important teacher. Home visitors also conduct regular screenings to help parents identify possible health and developmental issues.
