When a baby is on the way, family needs become more complex. A network of community partners can help.
Early Head Start (EHS) staff engage pregnant mothers and expectant families as they prepare for their new baby.

This includes engaging fathers from the beginning. Understanding what to expect during pregnancy and after the birth can help young families feel better prepared to face parenthood.
