Freedom Home Care’s Newborn Care Program is designed to assist new mothers and fathers in their own home as they learn to care for their new child.

Our Newborn Care services give parents the help they need to ease into life with a new baby at home.
What is Newborn Care?
For many people, going home with a newborn baby is the most exciting – and most terrifying – moment of their lives. Newborns have many needs, like frequent feedings and diaper changes, and their needs many not always be obvious to new parents. After all, babies can’t tell us what they want or why they’re crying! Newborns can also have health issues that are different from older children and adults, like diaper rash and cradle cap. FHC’s Newborn Care helps educate new parents on how to best handle both the unexpected and daily needs of newborn babies.
What kind of at home newborn help can FHC offer?
Our caregivers and certified nursing assistants are available not just to help you learn the best, most efficient ways of keeping your new baby happy and healthy – we’re also here to help you develop confidence, understanding and practical skills that will help you transition with your new family. FHC support is also available to help out simply because you might need rest or a longer recovery period post-delivery. Newborn baby care can be totally adapted to your family’s needs.
Here are some of the specific services our caregivers can offer:
