Sometimes a friendly face, adult conversation, and a chance to talk through normal feelings, such as exhilaration, confusion, excitement, and stress can make a world of difference.
Lauren & Mark Rubin Visiting Moms® is a free service that matches volunteers with new parents during the first year of their baby’s life, whether it’s the first baby or a new baby in the household. Volunteers are trained and supervised and support parents who are adjusting to parenthood, isolated, or overwhelmed. Volunteers visit new parents at home and provide a weekly visit for at least two months or up until the baby’s first birthday.
