Home and Not Alone Service

Support for Parents and Baby

Home and Not Alone is an innovative program designed to offer support, baby care education, and physical assessment of you and your baby.

If you choose to be discharged early, you may have the option for a visit by a registered nurse from our Winchester Home Care Department, who will assist you in your transition at home with your baby.

All of our nurses are trained in the area of newborn health. The home visit may include the following care.

For the mother:
  • Blood pressure checks
  • Weight checks
  • Assistance with bottle feeding and breastfeeding
  • Assessment of postpartum recovery and nutrition
  • Newborn care and instruction
  • Community resource referrals
For the baby:
  • Weight checks
  • Physical assessment
  • Feeding assessment
  • Phototherapy blood work for infants with jaundice

If your insurance company does not provide follow-up care, you may receive this service on a self-pay basis. We hope these services will help you make this a happy and healthy time for you and your family.
