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.

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

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
