Maternal Infant Health Program (MIHP)

Pregnant Belly

Maternal Infant Health Program (MIHP) is a program that helps all Michigan women who are pregnant and on Medicaid, as well as all infants with Medicaid. MIHP provides support to promote healthy pregnancies, good birth outcomes, and healthy infants.



  • Maternal and infant health, psychosocial and nutritional assessment completed by a nurse, social worker, or nutritionist.
  • A team, including a Registered Nurse, Licensed Social Worker and Registered Dietician, that develops beneficiary care plans.
  • Coordination with MIHP services with the beneficiary's medical care provider and Medicaid Health Plan (who assist and supplement that care).
  • Home or office visits from the Registered Nurse, Licensed Social Worker, and Registered Dietitian to provide interventions based on the beneficiary's plan of care.
  • Transportation service arrangements if needed.
  • Referrals made to local community services (i.e. mental health, substance abuse, domestic violence, basic needs assistance, etc.) as needed.
  • Referrals to local childbirth education or parenting classes.
