Be Brave: A Story of Early Childhood Home Visiting

Project: National Home Visiting Resource Center

Motherhood can be lonely. For parents living in rural communities, the isolation can be physical and emotional.

In this video, first-time mom Kristi describes her home visiting experience with Healthy Families East Tennessee. She shares how Cara, her home visitor, helped her recognize the signs of postpartum depression and connect with other moms despite limited access to the family car.
