Nurse-Family Partnership, a maternal and early childhood health program, fosters long-term success for first-time moms, their babies and society. Nurse-Family Partnership’s maternal health program introduces vulnerable first-time parents to caring maternal and child health nurses. This program allows nurses to deliver the support first-time moms need to have a healthy pregnancy, become knowledgeable and responsible parents, and provide their babies with the best possible start in life. The relationship between mother and nurse provides the foundation for strong families, and lives are forever changed – for the better.
To be eligible for the program, a woman must be pregnant with her first child, less than 29 weeks along in her pregnancy, and eligible for Medicaid.
