Helping First-Time Parents Succeed
Making new beginnings possible. 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.
The nurse will help the mom have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby and suggest ways to make the home a safe place for the baby to live and play. The nurse is also familiar with community support services and can offer referrals to help the mom meet the needs of her young family.
Women who meet these 3 criteria are encouraged to enroll.
- Are pregnant with their 1st child and less than 28 weeks gestation
- Meet income requirements
- Live in the service area.
This program is free to all eligible women. Please call Norman-Mahnomen Public Health by calling either 218-784-5425 or 218-935-2527 for more information or visit the Nurse-Family Partnership website.
