Family Road Healthy Start is a free program for expectant mothers and women with children up to two years of age who live in East Baton Rouge Parish. The program focuses on supporting moms and assisting parents with the challenges of a growing family and raising small children.
Family Road Healthy Start program is a way to ensure that your child gets the healthy start on life that he or she deserves by providing individualized assistance and information specific to your needs. This includes home visitation, case management, health education, support services and fun, family-friendly events. We know that becoming a parent brings many new questions and decisions, so the Family Road Healthy Start program was developed to provide the support you need, when you need it, so that you have the best chance for a healthy birth outcome while also maintaining good mental and physical health. The program provides information to help you better understand pregnancy, prepare for labor and delivery, and meet the challenges of parenting a newborn and toddler.
Healthy Start is a program supported in part by Project No. H49M00107 from the US Department of Health and Human Services.
