What is NFP?
A Free Program To Support First-Time Mothers And Their Babies.
Nurse-Family Partnership is a free program for new moms who are pregnant with their first baby. When you enroll in the program, you will be connected to a registered nurse who will provide the support, advice and information you need to have a healthy pregnancy, a healthy baby, and be a great mom. Your free personal nurse can help answer all your questions!
Once your baby arrives, your NFP nurse will work with you on breastfeeding, nutrition, child development, safe -sleep techniques, and much more.
These services are completely free of charge. You must be 28 weeks pregnant or less with your first baby and meet certain income eligibility requirements! Don’t forget that you can enroll as soon as you find out you are pregnant!
Supporting Hands Nurse-Family Partnership Nurse Home Visitors are registered nurses (RNs), with experience in public health nursing, maternal and child health, labor & delivery, pediatrics, and other related fields. The nurses have specialized knowledge and training in this evidence-based, community health program. Nurse-Family Partnership nurses help first-time mothers have healthy pregnancies, improve child health and development, and become more economically self-sufficient. Nurses who deliver the Nurse-Family Partnership program in their communities establish trusted relationships with mothers during home visits, providing guidance for the emotional, social, and physical challenges these first-time moms face as they prepare to become parents and prepare their children for successful futures.
Supporting Hands Nurse Home Visitors are located in public health departments throughout the 20-county area.
