Nurse Family Partnership

What is MIECHV? The Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIEHCV) program provides parents and other caregivers with the knowledge, skills, and tools they need to assist their children in being healthy, safe, and ready to succeed in school.  The program’s goal is to improve healthy and developmental outcomes for at risk children through the Nurse-Family Partnership program.

The Nurse-Family Partnership is a free, voluntary program that partners first-time moms with nurse home visitors.

When moms enroll in the program, a specially trained nurse will visit them throughout their pregnancy and until their baby turns two years old.  During these visits, the nurse will offer the knowledge and support needed to confidently create a better life for baby and mom.   As a first-time mom, you must have a ton of questions.  That is why Nurse-Family Partnership starts working you before you give birth to your baby.  By meeting with you as early in your pregnancy as possible, our nurse home visitors address your questions and concerns, prepare you for childbirth, and help ensure that you deliver a healthy baby.

The Early Learning Coalition of Polk County received a MIECHV grant, and the Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) is the program model the Coalition will use to implement MIECHV in partnership with the Healthy Start Coalition of Hardee, Highlands, and Polk Counties.

 

If you are pregnant with your first child, we can help.
