Birth & Beyond

Birth and Beyond is a program that provides in-home visits by a nurse within days of mothers and their newborns leaving the hospital. This program is for any family living in Mills County and is completely free. These visits are important for your family because the nurse will make sure you and your baby are doing well and staying healthy after leaving the hospital. The nurse will also make sure you are connected to the resources you may need during this special time in your life.


During your visit, an experienced Maternal-Child Health Nurse will provide:

  • Answers to questions or concerns
  • Breastfeeding support and education
  • Education on infant and postpartum care
  • Health check-up for baby
  • Referrals to community resources
