What is
Welcome Baby?


Meet Our

Welcome Baby knows that parents are their child’s first and best teachers!
We are here as your friendly guide along the way!

Welcome Baby is a free, voluntary program to welcome newborns into our community and support people in their parenting journey. The program includes a hospital visit after the baby’s birth, ongoing developmental information, meet-ups with other new parents, and connection to supports and resources through our Help Me Grow Skagit network.

Developmental Information

You will receive monthly newsletters with information about milestones, parenting tips, and opportunities and resources in the community.

Social connection is provided through meet-ups and opportunities to participate in local activities and classes.
