First Born Program lends a helping hand

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

Families in Los Alamos who are welcoming their first child will soon have help transitioning to life with a new baby in the house thanks to an appropriation of state funds and a partnership between three organizations.

 

Los Alamos Medical Center, the LAMC Auxiliary and the Los Alamos National Laboratory Foundation of Northern New Mexico have teamed up to form First Born, a program aimed at women who are pregnant for the first time.

 

The program, which began on Nov. 1, provides home visits for parents who have had their first child.

 

This includes adopted parents who are having their first child, as well as a new father or mother (even if they married a spouse who had a child from a previous marriage).

 

According to the brochure, the program “provides mothers, fathers and primary care providers (for example, grandparents) with education and support to encourage normal growth and development of babies in positive, nurturing families. The concept behind the program is that a healthy pregnancy and childhood are not only critical to the immediate well being of the child but are also basic to building a resilient family and healthy community.”
