  • Mission:
  • Healthy Start is a comprehensive program of maternal and child health services intended to improve pregnancy outcomes and help children get a healthy start in life. Healthy Start accomplishes this through care coordination and support services that include childbirth education, parenting education and support, breastfeeding education and support, nutritional counseling, smoking cessation counseling, and between pregnancy education and counseling. Access to Healthy Start services is free for everyone and is not based upon your income.

  • History:
  • Healthy Start was born in 1991 when the Governor and First Lady convened a group of community leaders and challenged them to build local coalitions to reduce Florida's alarmingly high infant mortality rate. Healthy Start builds on Governor Chiles' experience as chairman of the National Commission to Prevent Infant Mortality and helps at- risk mothers receive the care they need for a healthy pregnancy and baby. Governor Lawton Chiles believed every child deserved a healthy start in life and worked with communities to build strong local coalitions to provide high-quality prenatal care for mothers and health care for children.
