Healthy Start aims to reduce infant deaths, decrease the number of low birth weight babies, and improve the health and developmental progress for all Florida babies. Care coordinators provide education, support, and guidance to women who are pregnant or have a child under age three years and connect families to community resources. 

Any woman can elect to be screened by their OB provider, or their infant maybe screened at the time of delivery. The confidential screening helps to identify babies who may have a greater risk for poor health outcomes.
