The Nurse-Family Partnership is a free, voluntary program that partners first-time moms with nurse home visitors.

When moms enroll in the program, a NFP-Logospecially trained nurse will visit them 151931005-smthroughout their pregnancy and until their baby turns two years old.  During these visits, the nurse will offer the knowledge and support needed to confidently create a better life for baby and mom.   As a first-time mom, you must have a ton of questions.  That is why Nurse-Family Partnership starts working you before you give birth to your baby.  By meeting with you as early in your pregnancy as possible, our nurse home visitors address your questions and concerns, prepare you for childbirth, and help ensure that you deliver a healthy baby.
