Description

The goal of the Maternal Infant Health Program (MIHP) is to help women have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. It is our mission to provide pregnant women and babies with high-quality support services to help make sure both you and your baby are healthy and well. MIHP is free to you if you are pregnant or have a child under one year old and on Medicaid. MIHP services are provided by licensed Registered Nurses, Social Workers and Registered Dietitians. We work with you one-on-one and refer to local agencies to help you and your child to have the best start possible.

During your pregnancy, our team can visit you in your home or a place that is comfortable for you. After your baby is born, we will help you build a healthy future for you and your child by providing home visits.

The Nest Child Care and Parent Institute is certified by the Michigan Department of Community Health to provide MIHP services to Medicaid-eligible women and infants. If you are not signed up for Medicaid, we can help you enroll.
