What We're About

Support for every mother.
Care for every baby.

Every baby is precious, but unfortunately, not every baby is treated that way. If a child is born into a vulnerable family, they are more likely to be preterm, underweight and suffer severe health complications. Many even die before their first birthday. We don’t want yours to be one of them. Give your baby the opportunity to live their fullest potential by making good choices for them throughout conception and beyond.

At Healthy Baby Network, we are dedicated to giving babies a healthy start in life. Through data, health planning, and creating social support for mothers, we are transforming our community baby by baby.

On this website you will find the research and resources you need to have a successful journey into motherhood.
