MCAH Program's goals are to improve the health of all newborns in Orange County. We aim to increase access to early and continuous prenatal care (pdf document) among all pregnant women.
We provide access to free or low-cost prenatal care by linking expectant mothers and their families to doctor’s offices or community clinics in their area. Regardless of residency status, any uninsured pregnant woman in Orange County can call for referral to a clinic where she can start her prenatal care.
