Monroe County Dept. of Public Health: Nurse-Family Partnership
Nurse-Family Partnership is a program for women who are having their first baby. Specially trained nurses will make home visits throughout your pregnancy and continue to visit you until your baby is 2-years old.
Any woman who is pregnant with her first child and meets income requirements can enroll. Women can join as early in their pregnancy as they like, but they must join before the 28th week of pregnancy.
