New Haven Healthy Start

New Haven Healthy Start provides a continuum of services to pregnant women, mothers, fathers, and their infants to ensure healthy birth outcomes.

Ensuring the healthy birth of every child

Giving Babies a Healthy Start

New Haven Healthy Start (NHHS) helps ensure the birth of healthy babies with a continuum of services to pregnant women, recent mothers, fathers and their infants. Founded in 1997 as a program of The Foundation, NHHS is supported by a federal grant from Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Maternal and Child Health.

Are you expecting a child? Are you a parent or guardian responsible for an infant younger than 18 months old?

Helping mothers deliver and raise healthy babies

For Pregnant Women and Mothers

We support families through a entire pregnancy and after the child is born. We provide a range of services including connections to medical and social services, breastfeeding support, parenting classes and more.

Helping dads be involved and engaged

For Fathers

We support fathers so they can overcome the barriers to building and maintaining healthy relationships with their children.

Helping Children and Families Thrive

For the Community

The NHHS Consortium provides a platform for the community to learn and understand conditions that impact family health. We invite community members to participate in discussions and activities to improve conditions that impact families and the services they receive. Everyone is welcome.

Meetings take place the third Wednesday of every other month (January, March, May, July, September, November) from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. For more information or to join, contact New Haven Healthy Start Administrative Officer Cynthia Chan.
