Working together, working with you

FNP - What Next?

Once enrolled on the programme you will meet with the family nurse on a weekly basis for the first 4 weeks and then fortnightly until your baby is born. Following the birth of your baby weekly visits resume for the first 6 weeks returning to fortnightly until just before your child’s 2nd birthday when they go to monthly.

The programme is delivered in 3 stages:

  • During pregnancy (alongside usual maternity care)
  • During infancy
  • During toddlerhood

The content domains for each stage are:

  • Personal health
  • Environmental health
  • Life course development
  • Maternal role
  • Family and friends
