Bringing your new baby home from the hospital is very exciting. But the questions you have once you are home can sometimes be overwhelming. Catawba County Public Health’s Postpartum Maternal/Newborn Home Visiting Program is here to help.

Have a nurse come to your home.
We understand it can be hard to get out of the house right after you’ve had a baby. That’s why our nurse will come to you. The nurse will perform a health assessment for you and your baby, as well as answer questions such as:
  • Is my baby eating enough?
  • Am I breastfeeding right?
  • Am I healing properly?
  • Is feeling overwhelmed normal?
How will the visit help me and my baby?
The visit will help make sure you and your baby are healthy and adjusting well. If you or your baby has a medical need, the nurse will refer you to local healthcare resources. You will also receive information on immunizations, childcare, infant growth and development, and safe sleep practices.
