If you are under 19 and expecting your first baby, a family nurse can visit you to help you have a healthy pregnancy and enjoy being the best mum you can. Your specially trained family nurse will help you understand all about your pregnancy and how to care well for yourself and your baby. Your nurse will visit you regularly during your pregnancy and then after the birth until your child is two years old.
Clients receiving Family Nurse Partnership need to give consent to participate and must:
