Welcome Every Baby services during COVID-19

WEB Nurse Visit

  • Even in normal times, the first few months of a newborn's life can be both joyous and overwhelming. Sadly, Covid-19 is affecting everyone, and can be particularly taxing for new parents and their families. As Welcome Every Baby (WEB) constantly assesses how best to serve the needs of families in our community during this public health crisis, WEB continues to provide postpartum "visits" with nurses/lactation consultants to any Santa Barbara County family that is not being followed by any other postpartum nurse home visitation program.

    Covid-19 is a highly contagious disease and can lead to severe illness and death. An inherent risk of exposure to Covid-19 exists in any public place, including in the home when members of different households are together. It is WEB highest priority to provide safe support to families in our community. To do so, WEB continues to monitor the ever changing Covid-19 status and the Santa Barbara County Public Health Department’s and CDC’s recommended guidelines for risk reduction.

    At this time, WEB is offering both in-home and/or telehealth visits depending on the family's unique needs/concerns. If a family chooses to have an in-home visit, all family members present will be screened for Covid-19 symptoms and need to provide verification of being fully vaccinated (if eligible) or provide a negative Covid-19 test within 72 hours of the visit. When a Covid-19 home test is to be used, it must be completed in front of the WEB-FC Nurse. We also ask that all those (above 2 years of age) present at the visit wear a mask.

    To schedule a WEB Nurse in-home or telehealth visit, please call/text (805) 729-1593 or email welcomeeverybaby@sbceo.org
