Teenage Pregnancy and Young Parents
If you think you may be pregnant there is a specialist Teenage Pregnancy Team. They can help and support you from when you are making your decisions about what you want to do right through to after the birth of the baby, if you decide to continue with the pregnancy.
What is the Family Nurse Partnership?
The Family Nurse Partnership (FNP) is a voluntary home visiting programme for first time young mums, aged 19 years or under. A specially trained family nurse visits the young mum regularly, from the early stages of pregnancy until their child is two. The FNP programme aims to enable young mums to:
- Have a healthy pregnancy
- Improve their child’s health and development
- Plan their own futures and achieve their aspirations.
The FNP programme is underpinned by an internationally recognised robust evidence base, which shows it can improve health, social and educational outcomes in the short, medium and long term, while also providing positive economic returns.
To speak to the FNP in Buckinghamshire, call 01494 426915.
