Baby Connections

Welcome Baby Visit


Are you pregnant or have a child under the age of 1? You deserve to have the tools, information and support you need to enjoy parenting in your baby’s first year. Having a Welcome Baby Visit with a Baby connector is a great way to check in about all topics relating to your baby.

At a Welcome Baby Visit, a Baby Connector listens to parents concerns and answers questions. They give practical tips that parents can use in their day-to-day lives. They provide a free baby sling and teach you how to use it. Common topics are sleeping, eating, soothing, infant development, how to play with babies, sibling reactions to a new baby, postpartum feelings and community resources.

Welcome Baby Visits are FREE for all parents in the Winona Area Public Schools district. Families residing in a neighboring Winona County district may also receive a visit from their early childhood programs. Visits usually last about an hour and are scheduled at the parent’s convenience.
