Family nurse partnership
If you are 20 or under and expecting your first baby, you will be referred with consent and may be offered the services of our Family Nurse Partnership (FNP) team.
The FNP team offer the same universal services as the health visiting team but with the addition of the Family Nurse Partnership Programme which is a fun and engaging way to learn new things and feel valued and supported by your own nurse.
Our specially trained public health nurses will visit you regularly whilst you are pregnant to help prepare you for the birth of your baby and getting ready to become a mum for the first time. Visits will continue up until your baby is two years old.
Becoming a mum for the first time is exciting and can also be scary for all kinds of reasons. Our nurses not only help you in the early days of meeting your baby, but also in the weeks and months that follow as they develop into toddlers.
It is up to you what support and advice you choose. This could be about feeding your baby, getting out and about after the birth, education and training to gain qualifications, housing, money, relationships or your childcare options if you choose to go back to work. Partners and other family members can also be involved in the visits.
If you would like to receive our service, you must be 20 or under, less than 28 weeks pregnant and living in Buckinghamshire.
