PICHC is all about healthy moms, babies, and children.
The Perinatal and Infant Community Health Collaborative (PICHC) Program is a home visiting program for pregnant, new mothers, families, and women who want to get pregnant. Through the program, women ages 15 to 44 years can get the health care they need and be connected to valuable services and resources.

We can get you connected to Birth and Postpartum Doulas
A doula is a professional who supports moms and their partners before, during, and after childbirth. They can be by your side during labor and provide physical and emotional support after childbirth. They can help care for a baby while a mother heals, provide practical advice on breastfeeding, help with meal preparation, run errands, or assist in lots of other ways that help to make the transition to motherhood easier.
To find out about our doula program, please contact Victoria Henry at firstname.lastname@example.org.
