Public Health Nurses visit families at home, school, or another convenient location to assure healthy pregnancies and support families in creating a healthy, nurturing environment for their children. Home visits are voluntary and tailored to individual family interests and needs. Nurses engage mothers and fathers in a variety of discussions about pregnancy health, breastfeeding, infant care, parenting, family planning, nutrition, child development, and safety. Public Health Nurses also support families in reaching their goals and help them to connect with supportive networks within their own community.
