Indiana ranks the 7th worst in the U.S. and last in the Midwest for Infant Mortality. In response, ISDH has created an OB Navigator program. The goal of this program is to identify women as early in their pregnancy as possible and connect them with an OB navigator - a home visitor who provides personalized guidance and support to a woman during her pregnancy and at least the first six to 12 months of her baby’s life. To begin that effort, ISDH, FSSA and DCS will be focused on connecting pregnant women who are covered by Medicaid and are living in Indiana’s highest-risk areas to these home visiting services.

Community engagement meetings with be led by Dr. Kris Box, Indiana State Health Commissioner.
