Exciting Happenings and Testimonials from Nurse-Family Partnership

Testimonials from a current client and recent graduate, Julie, mother of a 21-month-old.

“When I enrolled in NFP, my boyfriend and I were homeless, and we were scared about having a baby and finding a place to live. I have struggled with schizophrenia and depression, and without stable housing and transportation, it was difficult to maintain my appointments. It made me feel like my life was going downhill. I met with my nurse regularly, and I was able to find housing right before delivery. NFP helped me get ready to have a baby and to stay organized. I am now able to attend my appointments regularly for my mental health. NFP has helped me have a better understanding of being a parent. That makes me feel confident as a mother that I can provide the greatest care for my son.”

Testimonial from a recent graduate:

“NFP helped me in many ways that I didn’t expect. I received information on topics such as breastfeeding, brain development, and parent-infant bonding. These sorts of topics are not taught in school. We’ve graduated from the program, and with as much as my daughter has learned, I almost wish we could keep going. She’s 2 years old and can count to 20, knows her ABCs, and draws at least seven shapes. Maybe this doesn’t seem like much, but as a mother watching her child grow, I’m amazed. For this, I have to thank this program and our nurse.”
