Muscogee Nation Festival Closure Notice
MCN Health Logo

The Muscogee Nation Mother/Baby Program addresses nonmedical issues, utilizing the Family Spirit home-visiting model, that put mother and baby at risk, such as addiction, domestic abuse and lack of secure housing and adequate food. In addition to education, in-home or Telehealth visits by a Registered Nurse allow for monitoring and early intervention of common maternal health risks.

Depending on the needs of the client, the nurse provides education and case management to address non-medical issues. Visits become less frequent as the infant grows; with client eligibility continuing until her child is three years old. The mother earns incentives such as car seats and baby supplies, as she continues in the program. These visits allow the mother to develop a trusting relationship with the nurse, so she will be more likely to reach out for health interventions when needed. At present, due to capacity, program enrollment is limited to first-time mothers or those whom practitioners consider high risk.
