By March 23, 2013March 25th, 2019News

The ANFPP is a nurse-led home visiting program that supports first time pregnant mums with an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander baby.

To join the program, you need to:

  • be a first time mum or this be the first time mothering your baby
  • be between weeks 16 and 28 of your pregnancy

The ANFPP is a free service and is a voluntary program. Clients can join the program and opt out at any stage if they want to.

The program involves home visits during pregnancy, infancy and toddlerhood and gives mums the opportunity to improve pregnancy outcomes through the practice of good health related behaviour and improve outcomes in child health and development.

The Team is made up of two Aboriginal Family Partnership workers (Bronwyn and Fallon), 3 registered Nurse Visitors and we have a Nurse Supervisor who is the ANFPP Manager.
