A healthy infant is a joy to behold



MOMS Orange County has designed a low-cost, high impact alternative to traditional case management and health education using the community-based Maternal Child Health Coordination model.  Under registered nurse supervision, our staff provides access to prenatal care, health screenings, infant developmental screenings, health education and referral services through monthly home visits and group classes. Mothers and their babies receive one-on-one education and support during pregnancy and through the baby’s first birthday. 

During pregnancy, our programs focus on measures to increase the mother's chance of delivering a healthy baby.  After birth, the focus is on promoting the infant's healthy development and mother's well-being by

• Tracking immunizations
• Promoting nutrition
• Educating parents on early brain stimulation
• Screening for achievement of developmental milestones
• Modeling positive play
• Enhancing parenting skills
• Promoting women’s health.  

We do not provide any direct medical care but work with physicians and public health nurses to make sure families are accessing appropriate care.
