About First Born® 

First Born Program ® of Los Alamos (FBPLA)  is a nonprofit organization that provides parents and primary caregivers with education and support to encourage normal growth and development of happy, healthy babies in positive, nurturing families.  FBPLA provides free home visitation services to all families in Los Alamos County.  Services may be requested at any time during pregnancy, at the birth of the baby, or until the baby is two months of age, and continue until the child is three years of age (36 months), or until the family no longer requests program services.

At the program’s core is the conviction that a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby are not only critical to the immediate well-being of mother and child but are also integral to the long-term health and success of the family and community. The program curricula provide a comprehensive set of topics that families learn as well as specific tools, activities, and educational materials that home visitors can use to address them. The flexible and inclusive curricula can be adapted to each family’s needs.

A 501(c)(3), First Born is funded through the state's Early Childhood Education and Care Department and through other grants and foundations throughout the state.
