How do I enroll in the Healthy Start Program?
As soon as you think you may be pregnant, schedule a visit with your obstetrician or health care provider. During this initial visit, ask for the Healthy Start Prenatal Risk Screen. This is a simple one-page questionnaire that is completed by you and your medical provider.
The answers to these questions are kept confidential and are used only to provide the best possible care for you and your baby.
Pregnant women and new moms can also sign up by calling 813-307-8016.
