A SomerBaby reading a book

SomerBaby is a free and voluntary community program to welcome new babies to Somerville!

SomerBaby provides new parents with information and support when a baby is born. Each SomerBaby family receives a Welcome Baby Bag, a single home visit from a community liaison, a visiting nurse (if requested), information and support on breastfeeding, home safety information, and referrals to additional resources.

Each Welcome Baby Bag includes: information in multiple languages about local groups and resources for babies and their families, a handmade blanket, a nursery care and safety kit, a book, a toy and more!  

In addition to receiving a Welcome Baby Bag, families will receive a follow-up phone call to connect them with additional resources.
