Healthy Pregnancy (Maternal Health) Program

The Maternal Health Program is now called the Healthy Pregnancy Program! Staff are currently updating program materials with the new name and logo.

Taking care of your little one begins by taking care of yourself.  Starting prenatal health care early and going to appointments as scheduled will improve the chances of having a healthy pregnancy and baby.

The Healthy Pregnancy Program at the Scott County Health Department offers FREE support, education, and resources to pregnant people and new parents. These services are offered as an addition to prenatal care from your health care provider.
