Public Health Madison Dane County is the local health department with a staff of more than 160 people, serving over 540,000 people in more than 60 cities, villages, and towns across Dane County, Wisconsin. Their vision is for Healthy People, Healthy Places. Their mission is working with the community to enhance, protect and promote the health of the environment and the well-being of all people. 

They offer three programs for pregnant people living in Dane County:

These programs give support and information to have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby.

I wanted to highlight the Nurse-Family Partnership and Prenatal Care Coordination programs, which provide:

  • Personalized support to set goals and reach them.
  • Help getting health care.
  • Information about pregnancy, breastfeeding, and parenting.
