We are passionate about healthy babies and the priceless gift that health bestows on families.

Our work is fruitful – achieving infant health outcomes in underserved populations that far exceed those throughout the rest of the United States.

We have a deep commitment to staff sharing the same culture and languages as the families we work with. Research findings suggest that this cultural competency and the strong relationships formed between our home visitors and clients contribute significantly to the positive birth outcomes MOMS Orange County achieves.

Healthier Births

According to the joint study by the University of California, Irvine (UCI) Program in Nursing Science and MOMS Orange County, not only do women in MOMS home visitation program have better birth outcomes than the county averages, but the number of prenatal home visits significantly impact birth weight, gestational age at birth, and the probability of newborn admission to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

Each MOMS Orange County prenatal visit equals:

increased-birthweight
27% reduction in odds of NICU stay

Healthier Infants

Throughout the first year of life, babies are screened for normal growth and development, and parents are equipped with playful activities to engage in with their babies to stimulate early brain development and motor skills.

Research proves that personalized support and in-home observations leads to positive, lasting results. This very real human connection is the backbone of the success of the MOMS Orange County model:

93% babies on track with immunizations
98% babies on track for developmental milestones
