At Rutland Women’s Healthcare, we are committed to helping all moms-to-be live healthy lifestyles and deliver healthy babies. If you or someone you know is expecting a baby and also struggling with substance abuse, our Babies and Mothers Beginning In-Sync (BAMBI) Program can help.
BAMBI provides coordinated care for expectant and new moms with substance abuse problems in a safe, confidential and nurturing environment.
We offer a unique approach to care that ensures the health of you and your baby. BAMBI services are provided by a variety of specialists in the community and are coordinated by our specially trained staff. Your services and support plan are tailored to meet your individual needs and may include:
- Obstetric care
- Group and/or individual counseling
- 12-step meetings
- Family counseling
- Home monitoring
Our specialists help expectant and new moms find a substance abuse treatment program that works for them. We also ensure that newborns and young children have access to health and human services if needed.

Our BAMBI Program team includes a care coordinator and two social workers who specialize in connecting expectant and new moms with addiction support and other family and community resources, including:
