Service description:
Family nurse partnership (FNP) is a free and voluntary programme for young women 18 years and under who are expecting their first baby.

Who we are

We are specially trained family nurses who will visit you at home or a place of your choosing every one or two weeks from early in your pregnancy until your child is two years old. Our home visits usually last about an hour.

What we do

Family nurse services are designed to help you to develop new skills and make plans for healthy, happy future for you and your baby.

Your family nurse will provide you with information and work with you to help you make decisions to increase your chances of a healthy pregnancy. They will also help you to plan how you manage your labour and how you think about your child’s development.

We will help you to build a positive relationship with your baby and others, plan for the future and enable you to make lifestyle choices that will give your child the best possible start in life, as well as enable you to achieve your aspirations (such as finding a job or returning to education).

You will continue to have care in the antenatal period from your GP and midwife or obstetric team.

Your nurse will also be able to offer you healthy child programme assessments for your child from birth to two years. If you are working with other agencies, your family nurse can work in partnership with them.

You can contact the programme office directly to ask to meet with a nurse and notification to the programme can be made by any agency working with you but most often by your midwife.
