Start Smart for Your Baby

Start Smart for Your Baby® (Start Smart) is our special program for women who are pregnant. We want to help you take care of yourself and your child through this whole process. Our Start Smart staff can answer questions if you are having a problem. We can even arrange for a home visit if needed.

We care about the health of you and your baby. We want to make sure you both grow healthy and stay healthy. You should go to your Primary Care Provider (PCP) as soon as you find out that you are pregnant. It is important to take your baby to the PCP after your baby is born. Your baby will need shots and health screenings.
