Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies- The Montana Coalition

Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies endeavors to improve the health, safety, and well-being of Montana families by supporting mothers and babies, age zero to three.

HMHB was a recipient of BlueCross BlueShield of Montana's Healthy Kids, Healthy Families Grant!

We will use this generous grant to improve the system of support for families who are pregnant or who have infants, especially those struggling with a perinatal mood and anxiety disorder with project LIFTS--Linking Infants and Families to Support. By LIFTing families and linking them with hospitals, community-based parent support and education programs, and opportunities for parent-to-parent support; the health, safety, and wellbeing of these families will be improved. When parents have the support and resources they need to succeed as parents, children thrive.

HMHB was awarded funding to help unite efforts across Montana for women and children effected by substance use and neonatal abstinance syndrome.

Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies, The Montana Coalition, Inc. (HMHB) is honored to join the cohort of grantees funded by the Montana Healthcare Foundation to work on the issues related to perinatal substance use disorders and neonatal abstinence syndrome in pregnant women, parents, and their infants. HMHB’s project is called the B4 Coalition: Building Bridges for Better Births. This project will develop a coalition of partners (including hospitals, medical providers, public health departments, and community organizations) to highlight evidence-based models and best practices for treatment and prevention in pregnant and postpartum women and infants affected by perinatal substance use disorders and Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome. Funding will be used to convene twelve community partner meetings to gather information on treatment models, assessments, screening policies, and capacity building strategies for addressing substance use disorders and mental illness across the Montana health care system.
