Infant mortality, teen pregnancy and smoking: all threats to young lives in Alabama.

Alabama’s infant mortality rate is the second highest in the United States and is similar to rates found in Third World countries. Combine the risks of teen pregnancy and smoking during pregnancy — which also are seen far too often — and Alabama is facing difficult challenges that Nurse-Family Partnership is helping to address.

Nurse-Family Partnership in Alabama

Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) is an evidence-based, community health program that helps transform the lives of vulnerable mothers pregnant with their first child. Each mother served by NFP is partnered with a registered nurse early in her pregnancy and receives ongoing nurse home visits that continue through her child’s second birthday. Proven results from more than 37 years of research show how this unique relationship is turning lives around.

Nurse-Family Partnership began serving young families as an Alabama charity in 2008, in partnership with The Gift of Life Foundation in Montgomery. But the need is great, and statewide; to inquire about bringing Nurse-Family Partnership to more communities in Alabama, contact the Nurse-Family Partnership Business Development Manager for Alabama.
