Prenatal Care


Are You Pregnant with Your First Baby?

The Nurse-Family Partnership is a nurse home visiting program for women who are having their first baby. When you enroll in the program, a specially-trained nurse will visit you at home throughout your pregnancy and until your baby is 2 years old. These services are provided at no cost to you.

How often will I meet with my nurse?
Your nurse will visit every 1 or 2 weeks during your pregnancy and until your baby is 2 years old. You and your nurse will decide the exact schedule.

Who can join the program?

  • Any woman or teenager who is pregnant with her first baby and meets low-income requirements can enroll.
  • You can join whatever your age or immigration status.
  • You can join as early in your pregnancy as you like but no later than your 28th week.
