Providing exceptional care for first time moms
Casa de los Niños will support you by providing a free personal registered nurse who will visit you in your home during your entire pregnancy, and continue until your baby turns two. Our nurses will provide support and assistance from prenatal care to education and development and everything else in between.
Fathers, family members and even friends are encouraged to attend visits and learn how they can best support the new mom.
How Does It Work?
Through the Nurse-Family Partnership, you will be connected with a nurse who will visit every week or two from the start of your pregnancy up until your baby is two years.
After you deliver your baby, the nurse who helped you prepare for all the stages of your pregnancy will still be there for you – through breastfeeding, bathing your baby, and changing diapers. She’ll answer all your questions about pregnancy, and after your baby is born will talk with you about talking to your little one – and about planning goals so that your family has a good future.
