Prenatal Services
Support for Expecting Moms
Next Door's work begins well before a child is born. Our team of home visitors coach women through their pregnancy and prepare them for delivery and beyond.

Milwaukee Prenatal Services

We understand the prenatal experience is life-changing and you may have many questions. To find answers and keep you and your baby healthy, we offer Early Head Start home visitors to guide you through your pregnancy. They will be there from the first through third trimester to assist you through labor and delivery, postpartum adjustment, and the transition to other supportive services. We also have infant massage specialists to assist you.
