WCH: Newborn Home Visit Services
What are Newborn Home Visit Services?
Caring for an infant is a big responsibility. Taking a newborn baby home can be daunting to new parents. Newborn Home Visit Services help you by offering health, social support, and educational services. A registered nurse will come to your home to counsel you on your baby’s health and care; follow up on newborn screening; and arrange for additional appointments for the infant.
Visits are encouraged within seven to ten days following discharge from the hospital, but no later than 60 days after delivery.
