Michigan’s home visiting programs bringing support to new parents
In times past, pregnant women and new mothers received abundant support from family and community, but today that tradition has faded. Western culture now expects moms to be showing off their newborns on social media within a week, and back to work within six weeks.
That doesn’t leave much opportunity for moms to form the deep bonds they need with their babies. But a wide range of perinatal home visiting programs bring professional support to Michigan’s new moms and moms-to-be, helping to fill the void of community support and develop vital skills.
