Information for You

If you are trying to become pregnant or are just thinking about it, it is never too early to start getting ready for pregnancy.

All babies born in Vermont have the opportunity to receive a newborn screening test to check for rare but serious diseases which may not be apparent at birth.

Core funding for Vermont’s Maternal and Child Health division comes from the Title V Maternal and Child Health Services Block Grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA).

Through the Personal Responsibility and Education Program (PREP), the Health Department supports a variety of community organizations that promote adolescent sexual and reproductive health. 

WIC provides healthy food, and a whole lot more, including nutrition education, breastfeeding support, and referrals to health care and other community programs. 

While all children develop at their own pace, some develop at a rate that may concern parents and providers. The Child Development Clinic evaluates young Vermont children up to about age 8.
