For the Public

MHB Home VisitMy Healthy Baby connects pregnant women to family support providers in their own community. A family support provider offers free, personalized guidance and support to the woman during her pregnancy and for at least the first 12 months after her baby’s birth.

My Healthy Baby is a collaboration between the Indiana Department of Health, the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) and the Indiana Department of Child Services (DCS). This initiative is building a network of services and support to wrap our arms around moms and babies to create healthier outcomes for both. It was established by House Enrolled Act 1007, which was signed into law by Gov. Eric Holcomb in 2019.
