Prenatal Education

Tri-County Health Care:

Best Start Program: It’s about having the "Best Start" - Tri-County Health Care is committed to providing you with the best start possible. We offer FREE education during the prenatal physician visits. Prenatal education is offered from a Registered Nurse (RN) and Certified Lactation Counselor to all Obstetric (OB) patients that visit any of our five clinics.  The Best Start Program is designed to make you and your families feel at home by offering a pleasing package designed to help you through every step of your OB journey. Care continues beyond the birth of your baby; we offer you a home visit to assure you and your baby are doing well. We also offer other classes to help you through this journey, such as childbirth classes, breastfeeding classes, and sibling classes to help prepare your child for the welcome home of your new baby.
