Young parents are paired with a specially trained family nurse who visits them regularly, from the early stages of pregnancy until their child is between one and two.
Through a psycho-educational approach and a focus on positive behaviour change, FNP enables young parents to:
- Build positive relationships with their baby and understand their baby’s needs
- Make positive lifestyle choices that will give their child the best possible start in life
- Build their self-efficacy
- Build positive relationships with others, modelled by building a positive relationship with the family nurse
