  • For Parents

    Because babies don't come with an instruction manual, Welcome Every Baby (WEB) is here to fill in the gaps.

    The first few days and weeks at home with a new baby can be a challenging time for all families, and research indicates that more than 90 percent of families can use some additional support. Welcome Every Baby nurses/lactation consultants are trained to answer your questions and connect you with the support you need. The program is simple — a registered nurse comes to visit around soon after you are home with your newborn to check on parent(s), newborn(s), and the whole family. There is no cost, and anyone can participate that is not already enrolled in a postpartum nurse home visitation program.

  • What can Welcome Every Baby do for you?
