Family Nurse Partnership
Our Family Nurse Partnership nurses support young mums aged 19 years and under who are expecting their first baby. This is in addition to the support provided by a midwife.
We get in touch early in the pregnancy and work with the young mum and, where possible, the father and her family, until her child's second birthday. Once the child is two years old and the Family Nurse Partnership Programme has finished the family will receive support from a Locala health visitor.
We help the new mum to:
- be as healthy as possible whilst she is pregnant
- make sure the child is healthy and develops well
- continue her education/find work/plan for a financially stable future
During our visits we will help the new mum and her family understand the baby, work towards behaviour change where appropriate, emotional development and help to build positive relationships.
