In-home Parenting of Infants

parentAre you a new parent?
Like most new parents, you want what is best for your new baby.


You might have some questions such as:

•What can my baby see and hear?
•How should I play with my baby?
•How can I get my baby to sleep?
•How can I comfort my baby when he cries?
•Is my baby getting enough to eat?

Our “coach” can provide you with the information and support you need to answer these questions and get off to a good start with your new baby. A coach will help by sharing information about how new babies communicate their feelings and needs; showing you how to interact with your new baby; talking to you about what your new baby is doing; and telling you about the abilities of new babies.

This program is offered to all parents of newborns in York County, with priority given to first-time parents. A coach is provided FREE at a convenient time in your own home. Visits are scheduled during your new baby’s first few months home from the hospital. Each enrolled parent receives a FREE gift, home visits by a coach and, if desired, FREE classes on parenting infants.

If you are interested in this service or you would like more information, please contact Kathy Petry, Program Coordinator at (717) 757-1227.
