Parenting a newborn baby is the most important job you will have.

That's why Maine is offering the CradleME program for every birthing family. If you are pregnant or have a new baby, you are eligible to participate in CradleME from Maine's Maternal and Child Health Network.

Are you wondering how to get ready for your baby's birth? How to soothe your crying baby? How to manage sleep (both for you and your baby)? How to deal with the stresses of parenting a newborn? Or, do you or your baby have medical concerns, and you need a nurse to check in with you after you return home?

CradleME connects you with a phone call from a family visitor, a nurse, or both depending on your needs.

If you sign up for CradleME today, a family visitor and/or a nurse from Maine's Maternal and Child Health Network will call you and ask how you and your baby are doing. They will tell you about the services that they can offer. They will listen to any questions or concerns that you may have. Then, if you choose, you can schedule a visit when it's convenient for you.

Sign up for more information!

Please download, complete, and return the CradleME Referral Form (PDF) today, and a family visitor or nurse will give you a call to tell you more about what the program can offer your family.
