All newborns and their moms who come home to Morrow County are eligible to receive a visit from a registered nurse through the Morrow County Health District, to assess mom and baby, answer questions, provide support, and link with resources.
About the program
A newborn home visit is an opportunity for families to get peace of mind and ask in-depth questions about the health and safety of their new baby. The visit is conducted by a public health nurse who is specially trained in working with families with new babies. Newborn home visits are free and are provided soon after the baby comes home from the hospital.
Who is eligible for visits
Visits are available for all Morrow County families with new babies. Â These visits are provided FREE.
How to receive a visit
Upon the birth of your baby, the hospital may give you an information packet. For parents who deliver at Memorial Hospital there is a visit form in your discharge packet. Just fill out the form and give it to a hospital staff person. If you are delivering elsewhere, and would still like a visit, please call Kelly Worstell, RN at Morrow County Central Intake: (419) 947-4014 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
