MOMS Orange County
MOMS Orange County offers home visits and group classes to help promote healthier mothers and babies.
Under nurse supervision home visitors deliver access to prenatal care, health screenings, health education, infant development screenings, and resource referral services beginning in early pregnancy and through baby’s first birthday.
In-home program is especially valuable for mothers and families isolated from the resources and social supports that help prevent birth complications and poor health conditions for their children.
In classes health educators use interactive components to engage and equip mothers and their partners with the knowledge and skills needed for each stage of pregnancy and during the early development of their infant. Mommy and Me classes are designed to also encourage mothers to foster individual support networks.
Services are offered at no cost to Orange County residents who qualify for the program. Visit their website at www.momsorangecounty.org for more information.
