Family Connects Central Oregon provides Public Health Nurse home visits to families in Central Oregon who are welcoming a new baby.  A visit is scheduled between birth and your first doctor’s visit and assesses mom and baby health, answers questions you may have and provides connection to resources.

Visits are provided at no cost to families and are a continuation of your medical care.
