What happens during a visit with a family support provider?

video still

Visits usually last about an hour and can take place in your home or at a public place like a park, restaurant or library. Your provider may be able to meet with you virtually (a phone or laptop video conference). During your first visit, you and your family support provider will get to know each other. Together, you will decide the topics to cover at your visits.

Get Connected

What if I’m unsure about having someone come into my home?

video still

Your family support provider is there to help you navigate pregnancy and motherhood in a way that works for you. This means that you can meet in a public space or at your home. Many moms appreciate the convenience of meeting at home. This can also be very beneficial for you and your baby as your support provider is better able to understand you and your baby’s current environment and needs. Your provider is not there to judge you or your home. We encourage meeting at home when possible, but each mom knows what’s best for her and can schedule her meetings at the location that is most comfortable and convenient for her.

Get Connected

Can other family members be involved?

video still

Yes! Moms often find it helpful for partners, family members or even friends to be involved during visits. The education and support you receive can help the entire family.

Get Connected

How long can I expect to receive support?

It’s best to get connected as soon as you find out you’re pregnant so you can receive the fullest range of support. Your family support provider meets with you throughout your pregnancy and after your baby is born unless you choose to opt out earlier. Staying in the program can help you feel confident as your baby grows and changes. The program is completely voluntary.

Get Connected

Is there really no cost?

That’s right! My Healthy Baby connects you to a local organization at no cost. And there is no cost for your family support provider to meet with you and for you to receive helpful resources.

Why should I get connected when I'm pregnant?

Getting connected as early as possible in your pregnancy helps you get the education, services and support you need from the very start. Our moms who do this say that it helps them be extra prepared for the birth and caring for their new baby.

How do I know if I qualify?

The phone representative from My Healthy Baby will be able to help you determine if you qualify for the program based on your county of residence. Only Indiana residents can qualify for this program.

If I'm covered by Medicaid, will this impact my coverage?

No, not at all. Just like My Healthy Baby, Medicaid wants your baby to have access to the best local family support available. That’s why working with My Healthy Baby will not affect your Medicaid coverage in any way.
