The WELLcome Home program, a universal nurse home visiting initiative in collaboration with Baptist Health and Wolfson Children’s Hospital provides new moms with a home visit immediately after hospital discharge to provide critical post-delivery health education and referrals.
Mothers who deliver at Baptist receive a complimentary follow-up phone call after discharge, and are then offered a voluntary home visit with a registered nurse. During the home visit, the WELLcome Home nurse home visitor provides information on infant and maternal care; breastfeeding and nutrition; safe sleep and other infant safety topics. The nurse home visitor also assists with follow-up medical appointments, additional lactation support and providing community referrals for any family needs.
WELLcome Home is available to all moms who deliver at Baptist Medical Center Jacksonville and Baptist Beaches and are Duval County residents.
