Nurse-Family Partnership is a program for women who are having their first baby. Specially trained nurses will visit in your home throughout your pregnancy and continue to visit until your baby is 2-years old.
Any woman who is pregnant with her first child and meets income requirements can enroll. Many working families qualify. Individuals who participate in other programs, such as food stamps, Medicaid, WIC (Women, Infants, and Children), and Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF), may automatically be income-eligible.
Women are encouraged to enroll early in their pregnancy. They must enroll before the 28th week of pregnancy in order to be eligible for the program.
There is no charge for this program.
Nurses will visit every week for the first month after you enroll, and for six weeks after your baby’s birth. Otherwise, visits are scheduled every two weeks during business hours, but flexible and less frequent visits may be scheduled as needed.
The nurse will help you:

(WIC) provides nutritious foods, including low-fat or fat-free milk, cheese, eggs, whole grains, peanut butter/beans, vegetables and fruits. WIC strongly promotes breastfeeding as the best way to feed your baby. Breastfeeding support is available through our WIC Nutritionists and the Peer Counselor Program (753-5640). Formula is also available for infants who are either partially breastfed or fully formula fed. For more information on breastfeeding, please click here.
WIC has been shown to improve the health of pregnant women, new mothers and their infants and children. The foods provided through WIC are a good source of essential nutrients that are often missing from the diets of women and young children. Pregnant women on WIC have longer healthier pregnancies and fewer premature births.
