Education, Resources, and Support for New and Expecting Parents

Our goal is to help raise healthier babies in happier homes. Call us now to learn more about the program!

In Michigan, 48% of all births are paid for by Medicaid. 

MIHP is a program for all pregnant women and infants with Medicaid. It’s a benefit of Medicaid Insurance to promote healthy pregnancies, good birth outcomes, and healthy infants.

Michigan’s infant mortality rate in 2018 was 6.6 deaths per 1000 births, but for African Americans, the rate was almost triple.

MIHP is part of Michigan’s Infant Mortality Reduction Plan. To put it simply, the goal of our program is to help our clients ensure that their babies thrive.


Detroit continues to have more children living in extreme poverty than any of the nation’s largest cities...

"What Are The Sessions Like?"

When you enroll with our MIHP program, you'll work one-on-one with both a Registered Nurse and a Social Worker. Sessions are typically once or twice per month, for 30 minutes to an hour, and usually take place at your home in order to best accommodate your baby. Sessions vary based on what your individual needs are, but our clinicians generally provide education on a variety of topics and help connect you with the resources you need. We also offer free Ages and Stages developmental screenings to ensure your child is developing on target.
