Welcome Baby program …

… the best results begin with effective investments at the beginning …

Smart Start of Forsyth County support’s Exchange/SCAN’s Welcome Baby which provides support and education to first-time parents in an effort to help adapt to a new child.

These parents receive a bed-side visit in the hospital 24 hours postpartum. After an initial hospital screening, parents are provided with a follow-up telephone call for support.

In-home services and education begin with weekly home visits and decrease to monthly visits for at least 6 months postpartum. Additionally, a monthly support group, the Under ‘5’ Club, is held at Exchange/SCAN and provides support services for mothers, fathers, and caregivers of children ages birth to five.
