Who We Serve
The Newborn Postpartum Home Visiting Program provides home visits to Cabarrus County mothers and newborns who receive Medicaid benefits.
How We Impact
Through the assessment of the mother and the baby the Newborn Postpartum Home Visiting program is able to screen and asses the mother, baby, and home. Following the assessment resources can be provided for what the mother or family needs to be able to best care for the baby. Support to the mothers is a key role of this program. The home visit provides the nurse time to talk with the mother about the importance of postpartum appointments and birth control options.
