Connecting every child to a healthy future

Family Connects is a nurse home visiting program for parents of babies born at Hennepin Healthcare’s Birth Center and who live
in Minneapolis. A nurse visits you between 1-3 times after your baby turns 3 weeks old. You may have a visit earlier if your provider requests it.

Every family has needs when a child is born. The needs are different but we understand nobody is fully prepared for a baby. When we visit with you, our goals are to:

  • Offer support and guidance on caring for your baby.
  • Help you connect with your infant.
  • Discuss community resources that can help you.

How do I get started?

When you have your baby at the Birth Center, you will be given information about Family Connects. A nurse will let you know that a Family Connects staff person will be contacting you shortly after you and baby leave the hospital. If at any time you decide you do not want a Family Connects visit, you can decline, either when we call you or you can call us.



Call us if you have any questions or would like more information.
