Who We Are

What is Welcome Baby

Welcome Baby is a free community service offered by United Way of Utah County and the Utah County Health Department.

Welcoming a new baby into your home is an overwhelming experience. Like other first-time parents, you are probably experiencing feelings of excitement and anticipation, as well as anxiety and uncertainty. The next few years of your child’s life are very critical, and parents play a vital role in promoting healthy growth and development. Because children don’t come with a user’s manual, parents are left to follow their instincts, rely on previous knowledge, research the answers or ask family and friends for advice. It is definitely a learning experience, but not one that has to be done alone.

Our Mission

We recognize parents’ desire to be the best mothers and fathers they can be. We are here to provide resources to help: current information on parenting, home visitations from experienced nurses or trained parent educators, and increased support for family stability.
