THE FIRST YEARS
Babies and beyond, IRC Healthy Start Coalition is here to help you now that your little one is here and home. Our Healthy Start Nurse will be coming to your bedside to arrange an appointment for your home visit. This is a new program and something that every mother in Indian River County receives as part of their care. When the nurse comes to your home, she will be there to answer any question you have and will do a well-check on the baby and you.
Feeling blue and don’t know what to do? Tired mommies can feel stressed and overwhelmed. Call us, we’re here to answer any questions, provide support and give you confidence to be the best parent you can be.
After you have that first few weeks under your belt and are looking for activities, Healthy Start has many collaborative partners that offer play groups. These groups are a great way to get peer support from other caregivers as well as learn strategies to help build your baby’s brain.
“Help without judgement. It was such a relief to have a place to turn
when I was overwhelmed during pregnancy. ”
