Family Health

Family Home Visiting

This is a program with trained professionals who provide support, education, and referrals to Waseca County parents. This is a free home visiting program for any parent(s) beginning either during pregnancy (or in the first six months after the baby is born) and ending when the child turns three. Some eligibility guidelines apply, so see if you and your family will benefit by calling us today.

Child & Teen Checkup (C&TC)

The program works to provide outreach and followup assistance to families with children ages 0-21 years old to ensure that children enrolled in Medical Assistance and Minnesota Care receive comprehensive health care.

Follow-Along Program

This is an early childhood intervention system that helps you know if your child is playing, talking, growing, moving, and acting like other children the same age. It is a free program beginning when your child is born until the child is 36 months old.

Maternal & Child Health (MCH)

The program helps strengthen families through support and education. Home visits with a MCH nurse are offered through Improved Pregnancy Outcome (IPO), New Mom / New Baby (NMNB), and Handicapped / Chronically Ill (HCCI) services to prepare you for a healthy pregnancy, delivery, and postpartum period. Programs are provided at no cost to eligible women. Also available are free pregnancy tests.

Additionally, breastfeeding support and information can be found here.

MCSHN Assessments

Minnesota children with special needs may obtain an assessment.

Car Seat Program

The program provides education and installation assistance to the community and families using car seats. For South County Health Alliance clients, we provide one car seat per member, from prenatal up to the age of 8 years, along with education and installation assistance about car seat safety. We are also able to supply car seats to UCare and Medica clients and have some limited grant funded car seats available as well.
