Put your trust in the Marquette County Health Department's Maternal Infant Health Program (MIHP).  For over 20 years the Health Department has been providing Public Health Nursing visits to moms and babies.


What is MIHP?  MIHP is a Home Visiting Program for pregnant women and infants with Medicaid insurance.  MIHP provides support service to women and to parents so they have healthy pregnancies, good birth outcomes, and healthy infants.

MIHP can assist families with:

  • Helping you get prenatal care.
  • Answer questions about being pregnant.
  • Answer questions about caring for your infant.
  • Help you get food or a place to live.
  • Help you learn about fixing and eating healthy foods.
  • Help with health problems that could affect your pregnancy, such as diabetes, asthma, high blood pressure, depression or anxiety.
  • Help with changes that you decide to make to be healthy, such as quitting or cutting down on smoking, alcohol or drugs.
  • Help if you're concerned about abuse/violence in your life.
  • Answer questions about family planning (birth control).
  • Connect you with community services, such as childbirth education classes or baby pantries that give out baby items for free.
  • Be there for you if problems come up.
