Best Care for Better Babies & Children

A program for all families– whether a first time mother, an experienced parent, or guardian of an infant or child, we are here to provide education, support, and resources for the best possible outcomes!

Best Care for Better Babies & Children serves pregnant women and their families with infants 0-1 year of age, and children 1 to 5 years of age. The Best Care for Better Babies nurses are specially trained in the areas of prenatal and postpartum care, physical and developmental milestones for babies and toddlers, breastfeeding support and nutritional guidance, and resource networking. Developmental screenings assess overall health, development, language, hearing, and vision with the goal of preventing difficulties later in life. Best Care for Better Babies staff are familiar with area resources and help coordinate efforts to locate appropriate services for each family’s unique needs.

  • Home visits provide one-on-one time with parents and help increase parents’ knowledge of their children’s health and development. We keep in close contact with your family medical provider for questions and to report concerns.
