About National Service Office for Nurse-Family Partnership and Child First
Nurse-Family Partnership empowers first-time moms to transform their lives and create better futures for themselves and their babies. Watch our short video above to learn about our program directly from our families and nurses.
Over more than four decades, research consistently has proven that Nurse-Family Partnership succeeds at its most important goals: keeping children healthy and safe and improving the lives of moms and babies.
Nurse-Family Partnership works by having specially trained nurses regularly visit young, first-time moms-to-be, starting early in the pregnancy and 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 mothers 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 them both. Through the partnership, 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.
The Nurse-Family Partnership National Service Office is a non-profit organization that provides network partners across the country the information, support and specialized training they need to properly implement Nurse-Family Partnership and produce the same successful results that have made the program a national model.
