Maternal Infant Health Program
The Maternal Infant Health Program (MIHP) is a home visiting program for qualifying pregnant women and infants. MIHP provides information and support on having a healthy pregnancy and baby. Services include help with prenatal care, family planning, infant development, and community referrals. We will work closely with your doctor to provide you with the best possible care.
If you are a Medicaid eligible pregnant woman or have a Medicaid eligible infant, you can participate in the program. Medicaid will cover all of the costs associated with MIHP. You will receive all of the services this program offers without any cost to you.
Home & Office Visits
We know it isn’t always easy to get around when you are expecting or have a new baby, so let us come to you! Many of our Maternal Infant Health Program clients like us to come to their home. Our team of registered nurses and licensed social workers all perform home visits and will schedule a time that is convenient for you. If you have an appointment with a Community First Health Centers provider or with our WIC services, we can schedule your MIHP appointments in our offices around your other appointments.
During our visits, we will provide you with information on the following:
- Having a healthy pregnancy
- Labor and delivery
- Family planning options
- Nutritional counseling
- Emotional needs
- Smoking cessation
- Childhood development
- Community referrals
