While becoming a mother is a huge life event, it can be a lot and our friends at Mesa County Public Health understand that. That's why they have created a brand new program for first-time moms called the Nurse-Family Partnership.

The program is about connecting new parents with a free personal nurse. It has a proven benefit for families and multi-generational impact on the community. It's really all about making sure the new baby and mother are set up for a healthy life together as the process begins.
