Babies First!


Babies First! is a special program for babies and young children up to age five. A public health nurse or Community Health Worker will visit you regularly in your home. She’ll talk to you about your baby, check his or her progress, and suggest new ways you can encourage your baby’s growth and development. There is no charge for this program.

The public health nurse or Community Health Worker will visit with you until your baby is three. She will work closely with your doctor or clinic and give your baby health and developmental screens.

You can ask the nurse any health questions you may have and she will refer you to the appropriate agency for specialized attention. You’ll learn how to better care for and understand your baby, right in your home!
