What happens during a visit with a family support provider?

Visits usually last about an hour and can take place in your home or at a public place like a park, restaurant or library. While COVID is impacting our communities, your provider may be able to meet with you virtually (a phone or laptop video conference). At your first visit, you and your family support provider will get to know each other as you talk about how you feel about your pregnancy. Together, you will decide the topics to cover at your visits.

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.

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.
