What is Family Nurse Partnership?

  • Increase your chances of a healthy pregnancy 
  • Help you manage your labour
  • Improve your child's development
  • Build a positive relationship with your baby and others
  • Help you plan for the future
  • Enable you to make lifestyle choices that will give your child the best possible start in life.
  • Enable you to achieve your aspirations (such as finding a job or returning to education)
