Improving healthcare for new mothers and their newborns
New parents often struggle with where to find accurate information about what to expect with their new baby’s arrival. Helping parent(s) to understand early child-development milestones, home-safety, and how to emotionally cope with the needs of a newborn and the responsibilities it brings– and support other household members — is at the core of the Baby’s First program.
WellCare of Nebraska’s Baby’s First program was designed to help improve mother and infant health, reduce Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS), and provide resources for those families in need. The program is offered to all mothers in Nebraska with no cost to enroll.
