Babies Born Healthy

Also Known As: BBH

The Montgomery County Babies Born Healthy (BBH) program is a grant-funded program developed to target the disparity (difference) in infant mortality rates in the community.  The BBH program delivers targeted services to pregnant women in specific zip codes (20903, 20904 and 20906) where some of the highest numbers of adverse (bad) pregnancy outcomes happen.  All pregnant women in these zip codes are eligible for the program, but the main target group is African American women who have Medicaid health coverage.  Services include home visiting, prenatal education, parenting support, childbirth education, breastfeeding education, nutrition, education, links to community resources, transportation assistance to prenatal appointments and assistance with childcare while attending prenatal appointments.
