Nurse Home Visiting

MCAH Field Nursing
For Women, Children, Fathers, and Families!

    Antenatal & Postnatal Nurse Visits: We visit pregnant women & new mothers in their homes to provide support during a time of incredible change. We answer health questions, listen to concerns, help with breastfeeding, help to schedule OB appointments, provide birth control counseling, aid in transportation to medical appointments & connect mothers to community resources!

    Welcome Every Baby: In Partnership with First 5 and Sutter Coast Hospital, nurses from public health visit mothers in the hospital & welcome newborns with a resource kit. We connect with mothers after they deliver, then after they are discharged to ask how mothers & new babies are settling in, answer questions, provide nurse visits to the home to weigh & measure new babies & connect mothers and families to the resources they need to raise a baby.

Children & Youth With Special Health Care Needs: We coordinate with families and care and service providers to ensure that children and youth are connected to appropriate care that meets their individual needs. 
To refer pregnant or new mothers and children to a Public Health Nurse, please use the Universal Referral Form below.
