Have you ever thought about Mother's Day other than how you honor a mom in your life?  Mother's Day is always celebrated on the second Sunday in May. In 2014, the holiday will be celebrated on May 11th. Some other interesting facts:

  • More phone calls are made on Mother’s Day than any other day of the year.
  • 141 million Mother's Day cards are exchanged annually in the United States.

  • Consumers purchase an average of 2.8 Mother's Day cards each.

  • Approximately 65% of card sales occur five days prior to Mother's Day.

  • More people purchase fresh flowers and plants for Mother's Day than for any other holiday except Christmas/Hanukkah.

Mother's Day is definitely a time to show moms the importance they have played in our lives.  At Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) we believe every day is Mother's Day.  NFP is focused on supporting the new mom-to-be in being the best mom she can.  We work with the moms to have a healthy pregnancy, raise a healthy, happy baby and to become economically self-sufficient - to be the best moms they can be. 

One of our NFP nurses, Nicole, said, "We help a girl change into a woman and a mother. It's like a metamorphosis."

With your support and the amazing nurses and moms who are a part of Nurse-Family Partnership we are able to make an amazing impact in the lives of moms and their babies;  Maria, a NFP client says, "I've become a mother, a true mother."
