|Frequently Asked Questions|
How much does Baby Connections cost?
All of our services are free.
Who will do our visit?
Our Baby Connectors are licensed parent educators from Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE). They have years of experience working with parents and babies and believe that parents deserve information, support and resources so that they can feel confident parenting their babies. Our Baby Connectors stay up-to-date with the latest research on infant development and have received additional training in infant massage, postpartum depression and anxiety, infant mental health, and more.

Where do visits happen?
We are happy to meet wherever it works best for families. Most parents choose to meet at their homes. We have also met at coffee shops, ECFE in Goodview Elementary.
What do parents and Baby Connectors talk about during a visit?
We always bring a packet with current information on ways babies develop, community activities, and other topics. Most of the time, though, parents have questions of their own and we listen and go from there. Common issues that come up are: sleeping & naps, nursing & feeding, crying, older siblings, reading baby's cues, developmental stages, wondering what's normal, postpartum feelings, and community resources.
How long to do visits last?
Visits usually last about an hour.
