Family nurse partnership
Are you 20 or under and expecting your first baby? As part of your healthcare, you are entitled to support from our Family Nurse Partnership (FNP) team. The FNP team offer the same services after the birth as the Health Visiting team, but we also support you in your pregnancy through your very own Family Nurse.
A specially trained Family Nurse will visit you regularly at home, or where you are comfortable, during your pregnancy to help prepare you for the birth and meeting your baby. They will then continue to visit you and your baby until they turn two.
Becoming a mum for the first time is exciting and can also be scary for all kinds of reasons. The Family Nurse will personalise a programme with you, which could include feeding your baby, finding out about you baby’s development, education and training, housing, money, relationships, your childcare options if you choose to go back to work and more.
Partners and other family members are also welcomed to join you during your visit from the Family Nurse.
If you would like to know more, are less than 28 weeks pregnant and live in Buckinghamshire you can contact us directly:
