A program called the Nurse-Family Partnership is decided specifically for low income, first-time mothers who are looking for guidance throughout pregnancy and the first two years of their baby’s life. The program pairs each new mom with a nurse who provides the mother with nutritional advice, prenatal care, birthing classes, breastfeeding tips, and even how to become financially sound through the child’s life. The program has been proven effective in improving prenatal health, reducing injuries to a child, increased employment among mothers, and even improved school readiness for child later in childhood. The success of this program can be attributed to the longevity of the nurse and mother relationship and providing a new mother the knowledge and confidence to provide adequate care for her child.
