Pregnant with your first baby? A lot will change, but you've got this! Especially if you have a free personal nurse!

What is Nurse-Family Partnership?

Nurse-Family Partnership is a free program for people who are pregnant with their first baby. When you enroll in the program, a specially trained nurse will visit you throughout your pregnancy and until your baby turns two years old. During these visits, your nurse will offer the knowledge and support you need to confidently create a better life for your baby and yourself.

How much does it cost?

Nurse-Family Partnership is free to eligible and interested individuals.

Your nurse will support you to:

  • Have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby.
  • Become the best parent you can be.
  • Learn and practice things that make you more confident as a parent, like breast/chestfeeding, nutrition, child development, safe-sleep techniques, and much more.
  • Get referrals for healthcare, childcare, job training, and other support services available in your community.
  • Continue your education, develop job skills or follow your dreams for the future.

Who can enroll in Nurse-Family Partnership?

Anyone who:

  • Is pregnant with their first child
  • Is pregnant 28 weeks or less
  • Meets income requirements (we use Medicaid or WIC eligibility as guidelines)
  • Lives in Kitsap County

Nurse-Family Partnership is also available in:

Who can participate in the visits?

Partners, family members, and friends are welcome to participate in the program, but as the mom, you are the main focus!
