What our members are saying:
“I can honestly say the program was a big factor in influencing me not to give up. My nurse convinced me that an education was not only good for me but also the best thing I could do for my son and his future. I would definitely recommend this program to all first-time moms out there!”
“Even now that I’ve been off [out of] the program for 2 years, I can still use the tools Chrystal taught me to look after the health of my growing 4-year old.”
“NFP has helped me learn how to parent even though I helped raise my younger siblings. I have learned a lot of valuable information”.
Nurse-Family Partnership helps first-time moms, just like you, prepare for the birth of your child and gives you the support you need to achieve your heart’s desire.
Nurse-Family Partnership is a free, voluntary program that partners first-time moms with nurse home visitors. When you enroll in the program, a specially trained nurse will visit you throughout your pregnancy and until your baby turns two years old. During these visits, your caring nurse will offer the knowledge and support you need to confidently create a better life for your baby and yourself.
As a first-time mom, you most likely have a ton of questions. That’s why Nurse-Family Partnership starts working with you before you give birth to your child. By meeting with you as early in your pregnancy as possible, our nurse home visitors address your questions and concerns, prepare you for childbirth, and help ensure that you deliver a healthy baby.
From helping you have a healthy pregnancy, to coaching you on child development and empowering you to pursue your heart’s desire, your nurse home visitor will always be there for you so you can be there for your baby.
To be eligible you must:
- Be pregnant with your first child
- Meet income guidelines
- Be less than 28 weeks pregnant. You can register as early into your pregnancy as you like. We recommend that your nurse home visits start by your 16th week of pregnancy.
