Babies First! can help you and your baby be happier and healthier together. Take advantage of this very special program. The extra care you and your baby receive can make a very big difference in your futures.

Home Visits

Babies First! is a home visiting program for newborn children up to three years old. Public Health nurses regularly work closely with your doctor and clinic to perform home visits to monitor growth and development. 

Expect a Babies First! visit at 4, 8, 12, 18, 24, and 36 moths. Home visits may be done at additional times, depending on the needs of the family.

You public health nurse can answer your health questions or refer you to the appropriate agency for specialized attention. You will learn how to better care for and understand your baby, right in your own home. You control the program -- services may be discontinued at any time.
