Pregnancy and parenting support to first-time mothers

Nurse-Family Partnership is a free community healthcare program that provides pregnancy and parenting support to first-time mothers from nurses who visit their homes beginning in early pregnancy through the child's second birthday.

Baylor Scott & White Health is proud to partner with Nurse-Family Partnership to offer these services locally through the support of Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Hillcrest.

We have NFP staff members who are bilingual and prepared to serve both Spanish-speaking and English-speaking families

Visits focus on:

  • The importance of routine prenatal care
  • Reducing use of cigarettes, alcohol and illegal drugs
  • Healthy nutrition during pregnancy
Child Health and Development

Registered nurses visit the home weekly for the first six weeks after your baby is born and then every other week through your child's first birthday. Visits continue every other week until the child is 20 months. The last four visits are monthly until your child is 2 years old.

Visits focus on:

  • Parenting skills — including breastfeeding, bathing, diaper changing, etc.
  • Positive home environment
  • Environmental safety, both within and around the home
  • Safe and consistent child discipline
  • Proper healthcare routines

An important component of the program is to teach mothers to keep their lives on track and develop a vision for their own future.

Throughout the in-home visits, our nurses will help mothers:

  • Make reasoned choices about the partners, family and friends who are involved with their child
  • Plan future pregnancies
  • Continue their education and reach their educational goals
