The Healthy Next Steps Program identifies the needs of at-risk pregnant women and helps them to have healthier babies. Nurses conduct home visits and provide case management services in order to link families with needed resources and care. In addition, families receive instruction on self-care, the prevention of conditions that contribute to poor birth outcomes, and counseling about healthy behaviors. The Healthy Start Program also serves children under the age of two who may develop chronic or disabling conditions because of biological, psychosocial, or behavioral risk factors.
