Home Visiting New Hampshire (HVNH) is a preventive program that provides health, education, support and linkages to other community services for Medicaid-eligible pregnant women and their families in their homes. Eighteen community-based HVNH programs across the state serve over 700 families per year. Together families and home visitors talk about concerns such as stopping smoking, depression and access to reproductive healthcare. Families get support in their roles as their child's first and best teacher and learn ways to help their child grow and learn.
The eighteen community-based agencies across New Hampshire provide HVNH services to Medicaid-eligible pregnant women and Medicaid-eligible families with children up to the age of one.
Particular emphasis is placed on:
- Adolescents who are pregnant or are new moms
- Women under age 25 who are pregnant or who are new moms
- Women pregnant with their first child
- Women at risk for having problems during their pregnancy
- Pregnant women or mothers with substance abuse problems
- Families at risk for child abuse and neglect
