Florida Healthy Start Partners with Aetna Better Health Florida to Improve Maternal Health Outcomes

The Florida Association of Healthy Start Coalitions (FAHSC) has been awarded two grants from Aetna®, a CVS Health® company. The first is a $75,000 grant to support the delivery of doula care statewide through the network of participating Florida Healthy Start Coalitions. Using the G.R.O.W. Doula model, which was developed by the Healthy Start Coalition of Indian River alongside Cleveland Clinic Indian River Hospital, the Florida Healthy Start doula program supports, educates, and empowers pregnant women to take control of their health and achieve a healthy pregnancy and birth through the assistance of a professionally trained doula. A doula is a non-medical professional trained to support mothers and families with physical, emotional, and evidence-based information before, during, and after birth.
