Newborn Visits

Newborn Visits-Congratulations on the birth of your new baby!  You will be receiving a letter from a Public Health Nurse inviting you to make an appointment for a home visit with you and your new baby.  This service is not determined by income level.  During the home visit, the PHN will see how the parents are adjusting; do a brief exam of the baby including weight and height.  Answer any questions you may have and discuss the different types of services available throughout the county.  If you live in the country, she will also bring along a water test kit to test for bacteria, fluoride and nitrates.
