Minding the Baby logo 

Minding the Baby® (MTB) is an intensive home visiting program working with first-time young mothers and their families in New Haven, Connecticut. First developed in 2002, the program is interdisciplinary and brings together a home visiting team including a pediatric nurse practitioner and a licensed clinical social worker to promote positive health, mental health, life course, and attachment outcomes in babies, mothers, and their families. MTB clinicians provide direct service for young families while MTB researchers conduct ongoing research with both intervention and control families.
