Helping mothers and newborns adjust-that's the mission of 'Genesis Philanthropy'.
 
The non-for-profit branch of Genesis Health System launched their 'Family Connects' program earlier this month.
 
The program helps mothers settle in with their newborns three weeks after giving birth, by providing nurse home visits.
 
Jenna Jensen decided to use the program after having her second child, and says it's been very helpful
 
"As a young mom, it helps to have somebody there, making sure everything is okay. It makes you feel more comfortable, having the newborn, that you're doing things correctly," said Jenna Jesen, a mother from Camanche, Iowa.
 
Family Connects is a free program and is available in Scott, Clinton and Rock Island counties.
