What is Healthy Start?
The Healthy Start Program was created in 1991 with the vision every child deserved a healthy start in life. Local leaders were challenged to establish local coalitions to provide quality prenatal care for all women.
Bay, Franklin, Gulf Healthy Start was created in 1992 to provide free services in all three counties. The primary focus of the Coalition is to ensure the health and wellbeing of pregnant women and their babies.
The Coalition has partnered with over 30 community agencies to identify and provide support for a variety of community-based needs that ultimately affect the lives of pregnant women and their children. Healthy Start services include a variety of support services that include: care coordination, home visits, smoking cessation, car seat classes, breastfeeding education and support, parenting education, nutritional education, childbirth education and psychosocial counseling.

The turnout was great and fun for all who attended.
June has been very hot. The AC and somewhere to sit was nice for everyone.
