Someday Starts Now

If there’s a baby in your future, even if it’s months or years from now, today matters. Take control. Stop smoking, eat right, exercise, and do something about your stress. Whether you are a man or a woman, your health today is important - and even more important to the baby you might have someday.

The Texas Department of State Health Services Healthy Texas Mothers and Babies initiatives feature tools for providers in the health care and community settings, life planning and birth planning tools, information on the importance of breastfeeding, partner involvement, and preconception health as well as information for men and women of childbearing age for before, during, and between pregnancies.
