Parents of Newborns

Congratulations on the birth of your new baby! Being a new parent can be a wild experience. Here at the Putnam County Department of Health, we want to help you and your family navigate this exciting time. That’s why we created this website just for you.

Our Maternal-Child nurses work with community partners to facilitate multiple virtual and in-person support groups for new parents and are available to speak with new moms with breastfeeding questions. For information about these services, please call 845-808-1390 and ask to speak to a Maternal-Child Health nurse.
