“You have created a really wonderful place for parents.”
— Ed Tronick, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor of Psychology, UMass Boston
As a primary prevention model of care, we begin by asking two questions:
1. What are the conditions that help families and communities thrive?
2. How might Well Baby Center help to meet these conditions?
Using a prevention model, there are two key factors that prevent family dysfunction and help families thrive:
1. Adequate community support.
2. Adequate emotional support — provided by culturally sensitive mental health professionals.
Through our services, we help families receive these two protective factors. Whether you are juggling the enormous responsibilities of being new parents or simply struggling to get by in your life, we are here for you.

Well Baby Center believes that every family deserves a place to feel supported — especially in the beginning. By strengthening family connections, healing the past, and providing social support, we help families and communities thrive.
Welcome to Well Baby Center.
Our specially-trained family counselors guide parents through the process of self-healing and self-discovery so they can be fully present as their child grows. We strive to achieve maximum impact by intervening as early as possible.
In addition, we provide specialized infant-parent and maternal mental health training to professionals who, through their own clinical practice, will reach many families beyond those served at Well Baby Center.
We offer free phone consultations to all our new clients in order for you to ask questions, get to know your counselor, and make the decision to move forward. We will also determine your fee based on your ability to pay for services. Full scholarships and sliding scale fees are available – no one is turned away for lack of funds.
Well Baby Center provides high quality, affordable counseling services for adults, couples, children, families, and new and expecting parents. Services offered in both English and Spanish.
Each session with a counselor or parent educator is tailored to the needs of your family and child, allowing you to address the areas in which you desire more support and guidance.
Our parent-child groups promote sensitivity, flexibility, and mindful communication between parents and children to enhance the attachment relationship.
Our parenting classes teach parents how to set limits effectively by using empathy, love, and understanding to encourage cooperation and to strengthen the parent-child bond.
Services in Spanish
Effective Parenting (STEP) classes, counseling, and parent coaching are offered in both Spanish and English.
