"We often feel like we’re barely keeping our heads above water and our home visitor’s visits make us feel like Olympic swimmers."
"We love all the helpful information and feedback and reflection. We also like just having the time to discuss any topic that is current for us."
"The program is amazing and I love to spread the word to new moms I know. Thank you!"
If we could describe [our home visitor] in only three words: kind, respectful and fun! We enjoy her visits and have learned so much from the First Born Program!
