Welcome Every Baby (WEB) a personalized home visitation program for newborns and their families in Santa Barbara County. Since 2002, the WEB program has been providing, at no charge to the families, confidential home visits by registered nurses that are certified in lactation. WEB focuses on the primary relationship between parents and their newborn(s). WEB, in partnership with the Santa Barbara County Public Health Department and Dignity Health Home Health, is committed to providing all families with early postpartum support.
Parents who participate in WEB report feeling more confident in caring for their newborns and connected to their community. "WEB Moms" have a high rate of breastfeeding success and feel supported in meeting their breastfeeding goals. If a family is not already receiving a nurse home visit by another agency, they may be eligible to receive a postpartum WEB Nurse home visit by one of our dedicated, caring and very experienced nurses.
WEB Nurses work in collaboration with CALM, Carpinteria Children's Project, Family Service Collaborative, (a partnership of Family Service Agency, Isla Vista Youth Projects, Inc., and Santa Ynez Valley People Helping People).
