Welcome Baby is a home visiting program implemented throughout Los Angeles County that provides education and support for pregnant women and mothers of newborns. The program was piloted in one downtown Los Angeles community for five years and expanded to 13 communities across the county in 2013. 

The Urban Institute evaluated the Welcome Baby pilot and its expansion to an additional 14 hospitals over the course of six years. Publications associated with this effort include annual evaluation reports, a cost-effectiveness study, and a study on Medi-Cal enrollment and utilization.
