Maternal and Child Health in Addison County

The Middlebury Local Health Office promotes the health and wellness of Addison County’s women, children and families throughout their lives. To do this we:

  • Provide support and outreach to medical and dental health care providers, home visiting nurses, our local parent-child center, childcare providers and foster parents
  • Help women access health care for healthy pregnancies, and refer women and their partners to drug or alcohol treatment and quit smoking services
  • Provide training on a variety of topics including infant safe sleep to birthing center nurses, home visiting nurses, and new moms at the Parent Child Center
  • Promote the Bright Futures developmental screening during infancy and childhood, depression screening for adolescents and postpartum women, and link children with developmental concerns to the Children’s Integrated Services Team
  • Help new mothers with breastfeeding support; this includes encouraging initiation of breastfeeding at birth, linking women to breastfeeding support services like the Breastfeeding Peer Counselors at WIC and encouraging local businesses to become breastfeeding friendly.
