Nurse-Family Partnership empowers first-time moms to transform their lives and create better futures for themselves and their babies. Over more than four decades, research consistently has proven that Nurse-Family Partnership succeeds at its most important goals: keeping children healthy and safe, and improving the lives of moms and babies.
Nurse-Family Partnership works by having specially trained nurses regularly visit you, starting early in your pregnancy, and continuing through your child’s second birthday.
As an expectant mom you benefit by getting the care and support you need to have a healthy pregnancy. At the same time, you develop a close relationship with a nurse who becomes a trusted resource you can rely on for advice on everything from safely caring for your child to taking steps to provide a stable, secure future for both you and your child. Through the partnership, the nurse provides you with the confidence and the tools you need not only to assure a healthy start for your baby, but to envision a life of stability and opportunities for success for both mom and child.
