The baby welfare nurse has a tremen
dous responsibility. Her daily routine
demands faithfulness and close atten
tion. In cities where the board of health
works in close connection with physi
cians and where prenatal care is provid
ed the nurse is given the names of all
expectant mothers in her district. She
keeps them under supervision until the
children are born ana rfien assumes re
sponsibility for the babies as well as
for the mothers. She makes weekly
visits to their homes, shows them how
to prepare the baby's food, under the
doctor's instructions. She is constant
