Missouri Bootheel Healthy Start (MBHS) program, a component of MBRC, Inc., is dedicated to reducing the regional rate of infant mortality, and to improving the health and well-being of infants and their families.
The Healthy Baby Classes provided by MBHS are geared toward pregnant women and men and women with children age 2 or younger.
MBRC is a not-for-profit 501(c)3, community-based organization located in the southeast corner of Missouri. We provide perinatal and health education services to women and families in the bootheel region for over 10 years and has been instrumental in improving the quality of family in the region. Our healthy start program’s presence in the communities has resulted in a 16-23% decrease in infant mortality while addressing the critical issue of racial disparity between African American and Caucasian populations.
