Through the Best Beginnings program, a registered nurse from the Birthing Center will visit you at home within the first two weeks after the baby's birth to see how you and your baby are doing. The program is completely optional and free, thanks to a grant from First Five of El Dorado County. First Five is a program promoting the health and development of children 0 to 5. Ask our Family Birthing Center staff about the Best Beginnings program.
