Episode 6: Nurses for Newborns

When new parents are expecting, it’s never too early to start preparing your baby for a lifelong love affair of reading.

Reading to your newborn baby, and even your baby while in the womb, provides a number of benefits not only for the little one but for their mom and dad.

Parents Magazine cites that early reading promotes bonding time, vocabulary development and a love for reading and learning.

In St. Louis Nurses for Newborns provides at-risk families with a support network as well as materials as available to help care for the little one. The program also supports parents in helping to read to their little ones.

Learn more about the program and increased benefits for babies in the above video.

Nurses for Newborns” is a part of the Building Blocks web series.
