El Nido Family Centers is pleased to be partnering with Valley Presbyterian Hospital and First 5 LA for Welcome Baby, a free and voluntary home visitation program that offers information and support during pregnancy and throughout a baby’s first nine months.
Welcome Baby is a First 5 LA funded program that works with families to maximize the health, safety and security of the baby and parent-child relationship and to facilitate access to support and services when needed.
The program includes trained professionals who work with patients on site at the hospitals and in their homes.
Registered Nurses, Parent Coaches and Hospital Liaisons provide family-centered support and information on topics like parenting and early child development, bonding and attachment, and assistance on issues such as basic health care, nutrition, breastfeeding and home safety.
The program is available to all families regardless of risk factors or socio-economic status.
In the 2018-19 reporting period, El Nido served over 3,000 mothers and their babies, up over 27% from the previous year. Since launching the Welcome Baby program in 2014, El Nido has served over 10,000 mothers and infants.
Valley Presbyterian and El Nido work in partnership to implement the program to serve the Best Start Pacoima and Panorama city communities and surrounding areas.
