South Phoenix Healthy Start is a federally funded, community based; infant mortality reduction program. Our mission is to increase the number of infants that live and remain healthy past one year of age.
Our project provides perinatal case management services, health education events and learning opportunities and community referrals to women and their families in the South Phoenix area. Additionally, we work with the Maryvale community in West Phoenix as an outreach project of our program.
We help our community's families start new lives by offering these free services:
Maternal, Well Woman and infant case management throughout pregnancy and during the first two years of the baby's life
Home visits before, during and after pregnancy providing emotional and social support for mother and the family
Individualized, one-on-one and small group perinatal health classes
Referrals for prenatal, well woman and infant care, checkups and screenings
