Maternal/Child Health

The Maternal / Child Health Program offers Pre and Postnatal education and services to the community.   Outreach activities include an annual Baby Fair and childbirth preparation, breastfeeding and infant care classes on a quarterly basis at no cost. The Maternal / Child Health nurse is available for home visits, to answer questions and provide support to new mothers.


Patients are able to be seen at BMWC until they are 28 weeks pregnant and then will be transferred for the remainder of their pregnancy, until delivery by an obstetric (pregnancy) provider.  The Maternal/Child Health Nurse and our BMWC Providers will provide services for postpartum (after the baby is born) follow up care.


Eligibility requirements vary between programs. To find out if you qualify for a particular program, please call (208) 686-1767 or (800) 325-7371 between the hours of 8am and 5pm.
