Pregnant Moms

Pregnant mothers and expecting fathers enrolled in the Early Head Start Home-Based Program receive service options through the child’s first three years of life.

Early, continuous supports and services provide the best opportunity for:

  • Healthy pregnancies and positive childbirth outcomes.
  • Supportive postpartum care for the parents and child.
  • Fully involving fathers in the lives of their very young children.
  • Nurturing and responsive care during infancy.
Riverbend’s Early Head Start program provide prenatal information through classes, support groups, and home visits on the following subjects:
  • fetal development, including the risks from smoking and alcohol;
  • labor and delivery;
  • postpartum recovery, including information on maternal depression; and
  • the benefits of breastfeeding
