Early prenatal care is very important for a healthy mom and baby. The Cudahy Health Department offers confidential pregnancy testing that can confirm a pregnancy as soon as a woman is one week late with her period. The health department can provide a temporary BadgerCare+ (state insurance) card to income eligible women with healthcare referrals and pregnancy education.
