Nurse-Family Partnership moms benefit by getting the care and support they need to have a healthy pregnancy from a free, registered nurse who visits them from pregnancy until their baby is two years old.
An NFP nurse will help a mother:
Make her home a safe place for baby to grow and play
Get referrals for healthcare, childcare, job training and other support services that are available in the community
Set goals for her family’s future and find ways to help her achieve them.
New mothers develop a close relationship with their nurse who becomes a trusted resource they can rely on for advice on everything from safely caring for their child to taking steps to provide a stable, secure future for them both. Through the partnership, the nurse provides new mothers with the confidence and the tools they need not only to assure a healthy start for their babies, but to create opportunities for success for themselves.
