Welcome Baby is a free community service offered by United Way of Utah County and the Utah County Health Department.
Welcoming a newborn baby into your home is an overwhelming experience. Like other first-time parents, you are probably experiencing feelings of excitement and anticipation, as well as anxiety and uncertainty. The next few years of your child's life are very critical, and parents play a vital role in promoting healthy growth and development. Because children don’t come with a user’s manual, parents are left to follow their instincts, rely on previous knowledge, research the answers or ask family and friends for advice. It is definitely a learning experience, but not one that has to be done alone.
Welcome Baby offers several different levels of support to first-time parents:
- Home Visitations
- Parenting Classes
- Social Media
