APORS (Adverse Pregnancy Outcome Reporting System)
Having a baby can make parents feel happy and anxious at the same time. You are not alone. Parents often worry about what to do if their baby
has special needs. We understand your fears and would like to tell you about a special program, the Adverse Pregnancy Outcome Reporting
System (APORS) that can help you cope.
The Fayette County Health Department offers a home visit from a Registered Nurse. During the home visit, the nurse examines your baby and
provides information on doctors or clinics, if needed. If your baby needs specialized care, the nurse can also help with this. Information will be
provided on infant and child care and any other concerns that parents may have. These services, provided by your local community nurse, are at no
charge to your family. If you have questions or concerns about your baby please call. Someone will help you find the answers to your questions.

If you have any questions or concerns about your baby, please call the Fayette County Health Department. You do not have to wait for a nurse to
call you. Someone will help you find answers to your questions.
Best wishes to you and your baby.
We are happy to be a member of your baby's health care team.
