Family Health Services

About the Programs

Nicollet County Public Health offers special programs for pregnant women, families with new babies, and families with young children. Assistance may be provided in locating appropriate community resources.

A nurse may meet with you in your home to provide support and teaching about pregnancy and birth, nutrition, prenatal care, infant care and feeding, and growth and development. Visits may be scheduled during pregnancy or after delivery.

Family health visits may provide support and teaching for families with children having health problems or parenting issues. The focus of services is to strengthen family relationships.
