“The Welcome Baby program helped me understand my baby and develop more confidence as a mother.”
Whether this is your first baby or you’re already a parent, Welcome Baby gives you support during pregnancy and after you give birth. It’s all free – no matter your income, immigration status or insurance.
We provide you with your own Parent Coach and Nurse to answer questions. Your coach will give you tips to:
- Have a healthy pregnancy
- Manage stress and other emotions
- Promote your baby’s healthy development
- Make breastfeeding easier
- Bond with your baby
- Create a safe home environment
- Coordinate insurance coverage and doctor’s appointments
- And more …
Virtual visits? Phone support? We’re flexible!
Before the pandemic, Welcome Baby made home visits, but we now offer support online and by phone. When it’s appropriate, we’ll again provide in-person support, and can meet you at the hospital after your baby’s birth, then at home – or wherever works best for you.
Find the Resources You Need
Maybe your baby needs a specialist, or you need help getting baby supplies. Want to apply for programs like WIC, CalFresh, or public housing? Interested in going back to school or finding a new job? Your Parent Coach can help you find your way.
Anyone who lives in LA County and plans to deliver at Miller Children's & Women's or another Welcome Baby hospital can benefit from this program for free – with no commitment. Welcome Baby is free because it is funded entirely by First 5 LA.
