If I could describe my "dream job" it would be to visit newly discharged babies and moms. When I delivered my son, my hospital offered me to have an RN do a home visit to do a well-baby check, check my surgical incision and make sure breast feeding was getting off to a good start.
I LOVED mother-baby in school and did a 6 month elective in mother-baby my senior year of nursing school
. I also love pediatrics and community medicine. I love teaching and everything related to mother-baby.
So I have done an extensive on-line search and can't seem to find anything like this (I am in MA). I read about programs described for patients, but can't seem to find any agencies that do this. Should I just cold call a home visiting agency? I don;t want to do VNA with "sick" patients, I want to do those home visits with newly-discharged moms and babies.
