University Medical Center of El Paso recognizes that teen pregnancy is a persistent health issue in our community. Vulnerable young mothers in their teens and early 20s have significantly higher risks of adverse pregnancy outcomes, and their children are at risk for low birth weight babies, poor school performance and delinquency. Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) – a structured, nurse home-visiting program – can help prevent many of these problems, and improve the health and social outcomes for young women and their children. Rigorous studies confirm that NFP improves the health and economic prospects of low-income, first-time mothers and their children.
That's why University Medical Center of El Paso is part of the Nurse-Family Partnership program. University Medical Center of El Paso is committed in improving pregnancy outcomes, promoting the health of young children, and breaking the cycle of poverty. In communities around the country, NFP has been proven to work. Results show significantly improved prenatal health, fewer subsequent pregnancies, increased maternal employment, decreased childhood injuries, neglect and abuse, and improvement in the child’s school readiness.
