Better Worlds Start with Great Mothers! Nurse-Family Partnership is a national non-profit voluntary program for first-time moms. Beginning with trust, ending with extraordinary outcomes, Nurse-Family Partnership empowers first-time moms to transform their lives and create better futures for themselves and their babies. Research consistently proves 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 first-time moms-to-be, starting early in the pregnancy, continuing through the child’s second birthday. The expectant moms benefit by getting the care and support they need in order 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 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.
