A personal Parent Coach who meets with you and your family in the comfort and convenience of your home
Information and support on breastfeeding, home safety and other topics
An in-home appointment with a nurse within the first few days after delivering at the hospital
Referrals to additional resources to help you and your baby
Baby- and mom-friendly items such as thermometers, nursing pillows, toys and baby-proofing supplies for the home
The program is available to all L.A. County families at no cost, who deliver or plan to deliver at one of 13 participating Welcome Baby hospitals, regardless of income status. Welcome Baby will benefit families in different ways based upon where they live and their specific needs.
