Helping Moms and Babies Thrive

Women who see a health care provider early and regularly during pregnancy have healthier babies, are less likely to deliver prematurely, and are less likely to have other serious problems related to pregnancy. The Fairfax County Health Department, in partnership with InovaCares Clinic for Women, provide comprehensive clinical prenatal care and support services to eligible pregnant women who live in Fairfax County and the cities of Fairfax and Falls Church.

Call for an appointment at one of our five clinics.
