Nurse-Family Partnership is an evidence-based program that empowers vulnerable moms to transform their lives and create better futures for themselves and their babies. Nurse-Family Partnership works by having specially trained nurses regularly visit first time moms-to-be, starting early in pregnancy, continuing through the child's second birthday. The expectant moms benefit by getting the care and support they need to have a healthy pregnancy. At the same time, new moms develop a close relationship with a nurse who becomes a trusted resource they can rely on for advice on everything from safely caring for their child to taking steps to provide a stable, secure future for their new family. Throughout the program, the nurse provides physical and psychosocial assessments and screenings to new moms as well as developmental assessments for their babies and makes connections with community providers as needed. The relationship with 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.
