The Newborn Home Visits program targets Lake County first time parents, teen-parents, and their newborn infants. Public Health Nurses make a one-time home visit in the first few weeks after the baby is born to provide an assessment of mother and child, answer questions, link families to services and resources within our community. Topics include: Birth Certificates, Breastfeeding, Bureau for Children with Medical Handicaps (CMH), Car Seat Safety, Child Development, Childhood immunizations, Help Me Grow, Safe Sleep, Women, Infants & Children (WIC), and information about other family-oriented community agencies.
If you or some you know is interested in a free home visit please call Clinical Services at 440-350-2554.
