Regular Home Visits

A public health nurse may visit you regularly until your baby is three years old. She'll give your baby health and developmental screenings.  She will work closely with your doctor or clinic. Your baby's health will always be in very good hands.  Home visits may be done at other times as well, depending on the needs of the family.

Helping families make sure their babies are healthy as they grow and learn!
