Nurse-Family Partnership is a free, voluntary program that partners first-time moms with nurse home visitors. When a mother enrolls in the program, a specially trained nurse will visit her throughout her pregnancy and until the baby turns two years old. During these visits, a caring nurse will offer the knowledge and support needed to confidently create a better life for baby and mom.

First-time moms are likely to have many questions. That’s why Nurse-Family Partnership starts working with moms before they give birth. By meeting as early in the pregnancy as possible, nurse home visitors address questions and concerns, prepare moms for childbirth and help ensure the delivery of a healthy baby.
