Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) is a free evidence-based community health program that helps transform the lives of vulnerable mothers who are pregnant with their first baby. NFP is a structured, nurse home-visiting program that has been proven to help prevent adverse pregnancy outcomes, low birth weight, poor school performance, and delinquency in children while improving the health and social outcomes for young women. The visits begin during pregnancy and continue until your child turns two. Results show significantly improved prenatal health, fewer subsequent pregnancies, increased maternal employment, decreased childhood injuries, neglect and abuse, and improvement in the child’s school readiness.
