Ways and Means Podcast: Answering New Parents’ Cries for Help

On this episode of Ways & Means, we go inside an innovative, free public program that helps new moms and dads adjust to life with a newborn. In each location where the Family Connects program is offered, all families, rich and poor, are eligible to have a visiting nurse come right to the home after the birth of a child.

The program has been shown to improve parenting behavior and reduce emergency medical care for infants.
