Welcome Baby Program is now at MLKCH!

Through one-on-one visits from specially trained nurses and parent coaches, Welcome Baby’s approach is to enhance the well-being of moms, infants and their families while providing support, information and education. The funds will provide support to families during the baby’s first nine months, which includes breastfeeding, home planning/safety, family nutrition and infant assessments through growth and developmental milestones. From mother-child bonding to early literacy, First Five’s Welcome Baby program offers new mothers in our community important support for beginning a healthy life with their newborns.
