Maternal and Child Health Bureau


Healthy pregnancies, healthy children, healthy families, healthier communities​​

Communities are strengthened when all birthing people and their families have the same chance for a healthy life, regardless of where they live. Maryland Department of Health maternal and child health programs and services connect birthing people and families to services and information to support a lifetime of health and wellbeing. Maternal and child health programs span the lifespan from pregnancy and birth support to infancy, childhood, adolescence, and preconception care. 

The Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB)  is part of the Maryland Department of Health's Public Health Services Administration, Prevention and Health Promotion Administration.
