Nurse-Family Partnership

Helping first-time parents succeed with their first pregnancy

 

With your first pregnancy...

You may have mixed feelings and be unsure about the future. The Nurse-Family Partnership program can help. Our nurses are here to answer your questions and listen to your concerns.

This is a voluntary program and the services are provided to qualified Pueblo and Huerfano County residents at no cost to you.

During Pregnancy...

Your personal Registered Nurse Home Visitor will meet with you and help you:

  • find answers to your questions about being pregnant
  • make healthy choices about your diet and pregnancy
  • prepare you for labor and delivery

After you deliver your baby...

Your Nurse Home Visitor will continue to visit until your child is two-years-old. They will:

  • give you information about breast- and bottle-feeding
  • provide helpful advice to make parenting easier
  • teach you about normal growth and development
  • inform you about child health and safety issues
  • help you plan for the future
Please call (719) 543-8711 before coming to a clinic so we can determine how best to safely meet your needs. All patients/visitors are required to wear a mask while in any PCHC facility. The PCHC dental clinic is open and treating emergencies and providing other limited services - call 564-4823 for more information. PCHC is referring patients who need a COVID-19 test to the Colorado State Fairgrounds testing site (open Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and every second and fourth Saturday of the month from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.)
