Welcome Every Baby Family Connects Services during COVID-19

WEB-FC 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 Family Connect (WEB-FC) constantly assesses how best to serve the needs of families in our community during this public health crisis, WEB-FC continues to provide postpartum "visits" with nurses/lactation consultants to any Santa Barbara County family that is not being followed by any other post-partum 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 from different households are together. It is WEB-FC highest priority to provide safe support to families in our community. To do so, WEB-FC 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-FC is offering both in-home and/or telehealth visits depending on the family's 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-FC Nurse in-home or telehealth visit, please call/text (805) 729-1593 or email welcomeeverybaby@sbceo.org
