From day one, the little things you do can make a big difference in your baby’s life!

What a child experiences in their first years of life makes a big difference in how their brain will develop and how they will interact with the world as they grow.

How Home Visiting works:

Home visiting is a relationship-based program for families who are pregnant or have children under age five. It is free for all New Mexico families regardless of income. Home visitors come to see you in the convenience of your home or via remote telehealth sessions. From tips to help your baby sleep safely, to breastfeeding and nutrition support, to your self care, finding child care, preparing for school, and more. You don’t have to do it alone!


What Home Visitors do:
  • They share what you can expect as your child grows, and help you prepare for all their firsts
  • They help boost your confidence as a parent and build skills
  • They’re there to answer questions and share information to help you care for yourself and your child
  • They can connect you with family-focused resources, programs, and supportive relationships within your community
  • They offer support, listen to your needs, and serve as your trusted partner
