Healthy Start is for all Pregnant Women, new Mothers and babies (up until 3 years old). These services are in place to help ensure that all St. Lucie County Babies are given the chance for a Healthy Start in Life.
Why should I complete the Screen?
Florida considers these services to be so valuable that by LAW every pregnant woman in this state, regardless of income level, has the right to complete a Healthy Start Screen. If you aren’t offered one, ASK FOR IT!
The Healthy Start Prenatal and Infant Screens are one page questionnaires. The questions are meant to identify if you have any risk factors that could negatively impact your pregnancy and/or newborn. You and your infant can benefit from your participation with Healthy Start
