What Clark County says about it:

CHANGING LIVES FOR GENERATIONS

Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) is an evidence-based home
visiting program for first-time moms conducted throughout
the US and other countries. It is now also being offered
in Clark and Cowlitz counties to women who have had
previous live births.

• Women receive their own registered nurse who visits them
in their home or location of their choice during pregnancy
and through the child’s second birthday.
• Nurses provide guidance and support to promote
maternal and child health.

WHAT IS NURSE-FAMILY PARTNERSHIP?
Nurse-Family Partnership is a program with decades
of rigorous evidence that improves maternal and child
health when focused on vulnerable women with no
previous live births.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
It is free to eligible women!

WHO CAN ENROLL?
Low-income pregnant women with previous live births who
are at risk for poor birth or child-health outcomes are now
eligible in Clark and Cowlitz counties.

WHY INVITE MULTIPAROUS MOTHERS INTO
THE PROGRAM?
Nurse-Family Partnership will now serve both first-time
mothers and those with previous live births in selected
communities throughout the US. The new work is designed
to lay the groundwork for ensuring that NFP nurses can
achieve similar outcomes with vulnerable women who have
had previous live births.

WHAT WILL THE MOTHER RECEIVE?
The mother will receive home-visits from a registered nurse
from pregnancy through child age two.
The nurse will:
• Promote mother’s health and well-being;
• Help mother have a healthy pregnancy;
• Help mother promote her child’s health and development.
