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
