Maternal & Child Health Programs

Clatsop County Public Health Department's Maternal Child Health Services offer help to pregnant women, young children and families. We can help you find answers to questions about your pregnancy, education and support to expectant parents and parents of children in the areas of nutrition, safety, growth and development, parenting, child abuse prevention, disease prevention and health promotion. The focus of the program is the delivery of services in the home setting by public health nurses and paraprofessionals. There is no charge to you for these services; however, Oregon Health Plan may be billed for some services.
