Information, services and support
Many things contribute to a healthy and safe pregnancy. If you are pregnant or planning a family, Healthy Start can help you get the information and services you need to have a healthy baby, raise a healthy family, and keep yourself healthy and strong.
Maternal child-health navigators can connect you to the resources you need:
The Milwaukee Health Department provides services to fathers who are enrolled in Healthy Start. Fathers can be co-enrolled with the mother, or they can be enrolled separately with a child younger than 18 months old. Contacts with fathers can be by in-person home visits, phone calls, and text messages, and services include:
- Individualized fatherhood/parenting support
- Referrals to community resources based on goals and needs
- Connection to additional fatherhood support programs and fatherhood groups
Milwaukee County Healthy Start can help.
