Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP)
is an evidence-based, public health program that helps transform the lives of
low-income mothers pregnant with their first child. Each mother served by this
national program is partnered with a registered nurse early in her pregnancy (by
week 28) and receives support and guidance through her childís second birthday.
This partnership can help break the cycle of poverty by empowering mothers to
become confident, skilled parents able to prepare for successful futures.
To Moms! Nurse-Family
Partnership (NFP) is a free, voluntary program. As a first-time mom, you most
likely have a lot of questions. Thatís why NFP 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 have a healthy baby.
From helping you have a
healthy pregnancy, to coaching you on child development, to empowering you to
pursue your heartís desire, your nurse home visitor will always be there for
you, so you can be there for your baby.
