FREE IN-HOME CARE
We want you to feel taken care of
Once you’re enrolled in the Nurse-Family Partnership program, a nurse home visitor meets with you according to the following schedule.
VISITS DURING PRENATAL CARE
Ideally, visits begin early in the second trimester (14-16 weeks gestation)
Visits are weekly for the first month after enrollment and then every other week until your baby is born.
Purpose: Teach you about what to expect during pregnancy, delivery, and the first few months of your baby’s life. Help you establish personal goals and become more self-reliant.
VISITS AFTER YOUR CHILD IS BORN
- Weekly for the first six weeks
- Twice per month until your child reaches 20 months
- Monthly until your child reaches two years old
The purpose of these visits is to teach you about the growth and development of your baby, monitor the health of you and your baby, and continue working towards achieving your personal goals.
