Healthy pregnancies, healthy babies
The MOMS Program is a home-visiting nursing program that provides maternal-child health supportive services, free of cost, to residents of Cattaraugus County that are Medicaid eligible. MOMS is designed to improve equitable access to quality maternal child health care, increase lactation support for parents choosing to breast and chest feed, and enhance the coordination of care with other community resources.
Prenatal & Postpartum Services
A Registered Nurse (RN) is assigned to you to provide coordinated case management in conjunction with a Physician and other Community Agencies.
Your RN provides home visits each trimester to asses status, teach about pregnancy & how to prepare for the babys arrival, as well as visits after the baby is born to teach about baby care, importance of medical follow-up & refer to other community agencies as needed.
The following services are available via home visit:
