Welcome Family Program
Are you a new mom? Would you like a free one-time nurse visit? Would you like a free bag full of goodies for you and your baby? Do you live or are you staying in Boston?
We can help
Motherhood is a joyful, exciting time, but it can be stressful too. Loving and caring for a newborn can be wonderful and difficult.
Welcome Family is a free program available to you and your newborn. It provides a one-time visit from a nurse experienced in supporting moms and newborns. The nurse will check in on how you are doing and answer your questions. You’ll also get connected to other resources you might be interested in.
Get answers for your questions
During your visit, you’ll have up to 90 minutes with an experienced and understanding nurse. You and your newborn will receive a health assessment, and information about:
- Calming your newborn
- Bathing, changing and taking care of your newborn
- Eating well to keep you and your newborn healthy
- Safe sleep
You’ll also get a Welcome Family bag full of educational materials and some supplies.
