We’re here to help pregnant women transition into motherhood free of charge.
Becoming a mother for the first time can be overwhelming. The RVNAhealth Nurse-Family Partnership is here to help pregnant women transition into motherhood free of charge.
The Nurse-Family Partnership, a national alliance of clinicians invested in supporting first-time mothers, offers weekly prenatal and post-delivery visits for mom and baby until the child reaches the age of two. Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, all visits are virtual. Traditionally, visits take place in the home or other designated neutral place.
RVNAhealth Nurse-Family Partnership provides individualized support for both mother and child, including:
- Social and emotional needs for mom and baby
- Helping baby reach developmental milestones
- Health & wellness and safety
- Social and emotional needs
- Education or job goals for the mom
- Development of support networks
If you are an expectant mother and need guidance and support, we’re here to help.

Get Started Today
If you’re a first time, limited-income Mom who would benefit from a dedicated nurse to work alongside you for a healthy pregnancy, please fill out the contact form. This is a voluntary program and completing this form gives a nurse permission to talk with you.
By participating in Nurse-Family Partnership, a trained registered nurse can come to your home during your pregnancy (starting around the 12th-16th week) until your child’s second birthday. The visits are no cost, flexible and made to fit your schedule; usually, every 2 weeks. You can decide where to meet, what to talk about at the visits, and are welcome to have friends or family there with you.
The Nurse-Family Partnership program helps moms understand the growth and development of their child, offers resources to help them to parent well, and nurtures moms to set goals for themselves and their families.
