Welcoming a newborn baby into your home is an overwhelming experience. Like other first-time parents, you are probably experiencing feelings of excitement and anticipation, as well as anxiety and uncertainty. The next few years of your child's life are very critical, and parents play a vital role in promoting healthy growth and development. Because children don’t come with a user’s manual, parents are left to follow their instincts, rely on previous knowledge, research the answers or ask family and friends for advice. It is definitely a learning experience, but not one that has to be done alone. Welcome Baby offers several different levels of support to first-time parents.
Children's Service Society of Utah provides the Welcome Baby program to the Salt Lake Valley. An in-home visitation, which strengthens parent child attachment, increases parental capacity and function, identifies early developmental delays, strengthens community interactions and aid parents in preparing their child to enter kindergarten ready to learn.
Welcome Baby serves families with children prenatal to three.
