Healthy families make happy children. Give your baby a Healthy Start.

Our range of parenting programs, from Active Parenting Classes to Lactation Services, is designed to support and empower you through every stage of parenthood. Discover effective strategies for positive parenting, personalized prenatal education, and essential safety services like car seat installation. Our resources, including a comprehensive Parent Resource Library, are tailored to meet your family’s unique needs.

Active Parenting helps parents to help their children become happy and successful people. Effective parenting methods are very powerful and can change the lives of parents and children. Unmotivated, unruly children can respond positively when their parents use these methods and frustrated parents can “reawaken the feeling of love” with their children.

Baby Steps Birth & Beyond Prenatal Education

We believe that having a baby means so much more than just labor and delivery. Prenatal classes help parents feel calm and confident with the birthing process, while reducing the duration of labor. Prenatal classes are offered in individual sessions at your convenience and in your home if that is what you choose.

Healthy Families & PAT Home Visitation

Child Development Information hand delivered to your home?

Frontier Healthy Families Oregon and Parents As Teachers (PAT) can do that for your family. Healthy Families is designed to support qualifying parents and give newborns a “healthy start” in life all in the convenience of your own home and according to your schedule. PAT is for all families. Both programs help relieve some of the stress of having a new baby or multiple children. Parenting is HARD WORK! Lessons are based on your interests and needs. Your Family Support Specialist helps you connect with available community resources and brings learning activities for you to do with your child.

You receive information about your child’s growth and development and what to expect from the stage of development they are at. You will also learn creative ways to care for your child that will support you as you help your child become the very best they can be.

When does this take place?

Your Healthy Families visits begin as soon as you know you are pregnant, or at any time up to the third month following delivery. PAT visits begin at any time you contact us to express interest.

When you enroll an appointment is scheduled with one or both parents. Healthy Families visits continue weekly for six months and can continue until your child is age three. PAT visits can be scheduled according to your wishes (weekly, bi-weekly or monthly) and continue until your child enters kindergarten.

Let our compassionate, experienced Family Support Specialists help you answer your questions and make the experience of parenting a pleasure.
