Mom and Baby Special Services
The JPS Mom and Baby Program helps women who struggle with depression, mental health issues, substance abuse, and/or domestic violence while pregnant and/or after delivery.
We provide services that help women get community resources including:
- early prenatal care
- mental health treatment
- substance use treatment
- support groups
- parenting education services
How do I access the program?
You are eligible if you have one or more of the following risk factors:
- teen pregnancy
- current or past involvement with DFPS
- current or past use, abuse or dependence on drugs or alcohol
- living in a household with a person who abuses drugs or alcohol
- current or past domestic violence issues
- current or past mental health issues
- current or past history of sexual, emotional or physical abuse
- late or no prenatal care
- financial distress
What can I expect after a referral is made?
A Mom and Baby Case Manager will contact you to ask more questions to determine if you are eligible for services.
If you are eligible, you can enroll in Case Management services. Program enrollment is voluntary.
The Case Manager will work with you to develop a personalized Service Plan.
Together you will identify goals you want to accomplish and resources you may need related to your pregnancy.
Your Case Manager will meet with you at least once per month to support you in working toward your Service Plan goals.
You will receive information, education, and community resource referrals.
A “Mommies Program” is available for women who are currently in Opioid Treatment Services, or are in need of treatment services.
