Health and Parenting Education for Pregnant Women

Nurse-Family Partnership empowers first-time moms to create bright futures for themselves and their babies. Specially trained nurses visit moms-to-be in their homes or another location of the moms' choice. Home visits start early in the pregnancy and continue through the child’s second birthday. Visits are usually held bimonthly and last about an hour. The expectant moms benefit by getting the care and support they need to have a healthy pregnancy. Through the partnership, the nurse provides new moms with the confidence and the tools they need not only to assure a healthy start for their babies, but to envision a life of stability and opportunities for success for both mom and child.

This program is free and voluntary!
