First Steps

PCAHC sponsors the First Steps program at Piedmont Henry Hospital.  Trained volunteers offer parents support, education, and resources that can help families in the early months of parenting. Parents are given many useful items, including a development calendar marking  milestones, immunization dates, SIDS, breastfeeding, post partum depression and a guide outlining resources available to them in the community. 

First Steps volunteers offer follow up telephone calls to families for three to six months after the baby is born.  During this time we offer additional support, answer questions and give referrals to community resources.
