About Our Partners

Healthy Moms, Healthy Babies is a collaboration between several Missouri state agencies: the Department of Social Services, MO HealthNet Division, the Department of Health & Senior Services, the Department of Mental Health, and the Department of Elementary & Secondary Education. These state agencies are charged with the physical and mental well-being of Missouri’s citizens and offer a variety of resources, benefits, and services to provide optimal healthcare.

Our Mission

The mission of Healthy Moms, Healthy Babies is to end preventable maternal and infant health risks by connecting women to quality healthcare and supportive resources that will provide healthy, successful pregnancy and post-partum experiences for both mom and baby.

What The Data Shows

According to the Pregnancy-Associated Mortality Review, every year an average of 70 women die while pregnant or within one year of pregnancy in Missouri. 84% of these pregnancy-related deaths were determined to be preventable. The Healthy Moms, Healthy Babies efforts are designed to address not only maternal health concerns, but also pre-term pregnancies, and low birth weight and very low birth weight babies.
