Expecting a baby can be very emotional

You may be excited, yet nervous about what’s to come. Filled with joy, yet also filled with the fear of not knowing what to expect.

Healthy Start is here for you. This free, voluntary program offers compassionate support and resources to pregnant women – many referred by their physician – and families with newborns.

Who qualifies?

Pregnant women in  Clay, Duval, Nassau, St. Johns and Santa Rosa counties who meet specific criteria. Many women in the program suffered abuse or neglect as children, have a limited support system, struggle with a drug or alcohol dependency, and/or struggle financially, However, the program is open to any pregnant woman who needs extra support.

Even if you didn’t participate in the program during your pregnancy, your baby may qualify, as babies are screened for Healthy Start services at birth.

What to expect
