Healthy Moms

About us

The Healthy Moms program is funded by Rochester Regional Health, Rochester Regional Health Foundation and The Perinatal Network of Monroe County. Our program's goals are to:

  • Provide moms with the support they need to be physically healthy, emotionally healthy, and self sufficient
  • Help pregnant moms have a healthy baby that is born full-term at 40 weeks and weighs 5 1/2 pounds and above
The Healthy Moms Program provides moms with the support they need to reach their full potential as a parent and as an individual. Moms pick the services they are interested in and create a customized plan of what they would like to accomplish at Healthy Moms. Healthy Moms offers the following services:
  • Pregnancy education classes
  • On-site mental health counseling
  • Care management
  • Project Independence job training program
  • Leadership academy

Moms participating in the above services can receive on-site childcare. Moms that live in the City of Rochester can receive free transportation.
