How do I make an appointment?
A nurse will contact you to schedule a home visit.
If you have any questions or desire a home visit soon after arriving home, you can call the Health Department and ask for ther Postpartum/Newborn Home visit nurse.
If you have had a child previously, you may still have the nurse visit you and your newborn baby.
