The Family Nurse Partnership programme provides intensive visitation by nurses during a woman’s pregnancy and the first two years after birth. The goal is to promote the child's development and provide support and instructive parenting skills to the parents. The programme is designed to serve low-income, at-risk pregnant women bearing their first child.
