Family Nurse Partnership
FNP – HELPING YOU BECOME THE BEST PARENT YOU CAN BE
It is well known that what happens during pregnancy and in the first year has a major impact on brain development, behaviour and overall success in life. The Southern Trust Family Nurse Partnership programme is an evidence based programme which offers support for first time young Mums and Dads during pregnancy and until their child is two years old.
FNP is underpinned by an internationally recognised evidence base which shows it can improve health, social and educational outcomes in the short, medium and long term, while also providing positive economic returns.
A specially trained family nurse regularly visits the Mum and Dad at home, sharing information about pregnancy, birth and looking after a baby and toddler. The young Mum decides what areas she would like support with such as, planning childcare, returning to education or training.
If you are interested in enrolling in the programme or would like more information please contact the Family nurse partnership team.
