Teenage parents

Are you 20 or under and pregnant with your first baby?

If yes the Family Nurse Partnership (FNP) can help you. FNP is a free home visiting programme for first time young mums (and dads), aged 20 or under. A specially trained family nurse visits the young mum regularly, from early in pregnancy until the child is two.

Help is given to prepare them for when they become a parent and to support them in planning and achieving their future goals too. Young parents can get in touch with the FNP direct or be referred to the FNP by their midwife, GP or other health professional.
