Whatcom County Health Department is proud to be implementing Nurse-Family Partnership. Nurse-Family Partnership is a proven method of support for first-time Moms. Through Nurse-Family Partnership new Moms and their families are supported by a nurse until the first child is two-years old. This level of support is what many families need to thrive. Research has shown that families and children that are part of Nurse-Family Partnership are more likely to be healthy and to succeed. We serve first time low-income Moms in Whatcom County. Women must enroll in the program prior to their 28th week of pregnancy.
