"Thank you very much for all your help these last couple of months. I was almost going to give up on breastfeeding the day that you happened to call to schedule my first appointment."
Virtual visits, phone support – we're flexible!
Before the pandemic, Welcome Baby provided home visits. For now, we are offering support online and by phone. When it is appropriate, we will again be able to meet you in-person, including at the hospital after your baby's birth, and then at home – or wherever works best for you.
"Thanks again for everything, love this program."

"Thank you so much once again for all your support and advice. This was my second time using the Welcome Baby program. I wasn't sure if I really wanted to do the program again since I did it with my first baby. But I'm so glad I did. Because being a mom of two is so different and also every baby is so different…I'm so glad I had someone who understood and could help in a professional way. By recognizing what is and isn't normal when it comes to depression and letting me know that it's okay to ask for help. Thank you."
