Nurse Family Partnership
Nurse Family Partnership (NFP) is an evidence-based, community health program with over 40 years of evidence showing improvements in the health and lives of low-income, first-time moms and their families. It works by having specially trained nurses visit young, first time moms-to-be, starting early in the pregnancy, and continuing until the child turns two years old.
1.Improve pregnancy outcomes by helping women engage in good preventative health practices, improving their diets and reducing the use of cigarettes, alcohol, and illegal substances;
2.Improve child health and development
3.Improve the economic self-sufficiency of the family by helping parents develop a vision for their own future, plan future pregnancies, continue their education, and find work.
The expectant mother will receive support and gain knowledge through her pregnancy, and the nurse will continue to support her after delivery, enhancing knowledge gains and teaching skills that foster positive growth for both the mother and the child.
