Welcome Home Newborn Visiting Program

Bringing home a new baby is an exciting and potentially frightening time for parents. The Welcome Home Newborn Visiting program provides a home visit from a registered nurse within the first 6 weeks of the baby coming home. A home visiting representative will sign up eligible families during their stay in participating hospitals.

During the home visit, the nurse will:

  • Weigh your baby
  • Do a baby health check
  • Talk with you about baby care
  • Give you a free diaper bag and resources
  • Answer questions about baby and self care

Common questions or concerns include:

  • Feeding including bottle and breast
  • Safe sleeping arrangements
  • Weight loss
  • Umbilical cord healing
  • Maternal depression

Home Visiting is provided free of charge by funding through Invest in Children.
