A healthy pregnancy leads to a healthy birth

Prenatal care is the way to a safe and healthy delivery for both mom and baby. Babies born to mothers who do not get prenatal care have a higher chance of being born with a low birth weight, which may cause health problems. In addition, the likelihood that a baby will die is higher if their mothers have not had prenatal care.

Vecino Health Centers is proud to be recognized as one of the highest performing health centers nationwide by the Health Resources and Services Administration.
