Can my baby’s father participate too?
The Providence Nurse-Family Partnership encourages fathers, family members and even friends to be involved in the visits and learn how they can best support you
You and your nurse decide who gets involved
Because you are the one who carries the baby and you are the first person to take care of your baby, you are the one who is actually enrolled in the program and you are the main focus of the nurse
