Maternal Infant Health Program (MIHP)

Maternal Infant Health Program (MIHP)

MIHP promotes the health and well-being of pregnant women and infants through their first year of life to keep Michigan’s babies alive and healthy.

What is MIHP?

The Maternal Infant Health Program (MIHP) provides healthcare and support services for Medicaid-eligible pregnant women and infants through their first year of life. MIHP services supplement prenatal and postnatal medical care and are covered by the recipient's health insurance so there is no cost to pregnant women and mothers enrolled in MIHP. The goal of the Maternal Infant Health Program is to promote healthy pregnancies, positive birth outcomes, and healthy infant growth and development.

How Does MIHP Help?

As an MIHP agency, Care Matters provides home visitation support, health risk assessments, and care coordination for pregnant women and infants. We develop comprehensive and personalized plans of care by a team of registered nurses, licensed social workers, registered dietitians, and infant mental health specialists. Care Matters also provides referrals to community resources for:

  • Basic needs assistance such as housing, clothing, food, diapers, and transportation
  • Childbirth education and parenting classes
  • Behavioral health concerns such as tobacco, alcohol, and drug use
