Everyone knows that being a mom – or a dad for that matter – is the toughest job you’ll ever have. And if you’re the parent of a newborn baby, you know this better than anyone. Having a baby changes everything, and getting used to these changes can be stressful – and make you feel like you’re on your own.
Here in Massachusetts, there is help. The Department of Public Health (DPH) is excited to announce Care Share Bond, a comprehensive resource for parents of newborns on how to handle the challenging weeks and months immediately following a new baby’s arrival home. This initiative was developed by health care providers to offer information, tips and advice to new parents. Care Share Bond also offers insights from other new parents and resources to help parents be healthier and happier as they care for their new child.

Care Share Bond was developed by the DPH New Parent Initiative. To learn more about the New Parent Initiative, visit our web page.
