Nurse Family Partnership (NFP) and Maternal Child Health (MCH) Home Visitations

 
General Information
Description of ServiceNurse-Family Partnership (NFP) is a free, voluntary prevention program that provides nurse home visitation services to low income, first-time mothers prior to their 28th week of pregnancy. Nurses begin home visits early in the mother’s pregnancy and continue visitation until the child’s second birthday. Nurses provide support, education and counseling on health, behavioral and self-sufficiency issues. First-time mothers can expect to receive referrals to healthcare, childcare, job training and other support services available in their community. The programs’ goal is to help women have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby, become a great parent and build a strong network of support for herself and her family.
