First Steps

“When I was pregnant, I felt I didn’t have anybody to lean on. I was so lucky to have a nurse like her.”

 Shanice, 17-year-old first-time mom

Full-time Work and College Student Mother

NFP Nurse Home Visitor Erin’s client was 17 years old when she enrolled to the Nurse-Family Partnership program. The mother lives with her father, is taking four college-level courses, and is working full-time. Her son is 1-years old, and his mother is working with him to be able to sleep in his own bed. The nurse home visitor has helped the mother develop possible solutions and steps to take to improve her relationship with the father of the child while she continues to focus on work and school.
