Resources: For Pregnant Teens and New Parents: The Newborn Home Visiting Program
is a service for all mothers - regardless of age or immigration status.
A health worker will visit you at home to provide breastfeeding support and help create a safe and nurturing home for your family. They talk about any concerns and questions you may have, share information, and help you find services your family might need. The visit lasts about an hour.
If you have recently given birth and you are interested, please call 311 and ask about the Newborn Home Visiting Program. http://www1.nyc.gov/site/doh/health/health-topics/pregnancy-newborn-visiting.page NYC Nurse Family Partnership
