More than nine out of 10 mothers in the Nurse-Family Partnership program breastfeed their babies. And more than one-third continue breastfeeding when their babies reach six months of age. These are just a few of the documented outcomes in Washington State.
Nurse-Family Partnership nurse home visitors work with low-income women who are pregnant with their first child, helping these vulnerable young clients achieve healthier pregnancies and births, stronger child development, and a path toward economic self-sufficiency. Nurse-Family Partnership is a rare community health program that has been documented to achieve lasting and significant effects through multiple, well-designed randomized, controlled trials. More than 37 years of research proves that it works.
