Maternal, Infant, & Early Childhood Home Visiting

Pregnancy and parenting support are of vital importance to a new mom’s health and her baby’s growth. To help your clients or patients navigate pregnancy and parenthood, refer them to one of our evidence-based home visiting models: Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) and Parents as Teachers (PAT). These services pair families with registered nurses or parent educators who provide personalized education, support and coaching, and referrals to services to empower families to reach their goals. Nurses and parent educators work with families in their homes or the family’s preferred location. Source: https://partnersforfamilyhealth.org/miechv/
