Magic Window of Opportunity

"There is a magic window of opportunity during pregnancy...it's a time when the desire to be a good mother - and raise a healthy, happy child - creates motivation to overcome incredible obstacles including poverty, instability or abuse with the help of a well-trained nurse."                    - David Olds, Ph.D., Founder, Nurse-Family Partnership

Your support of Nurse-Family Partnership means that more and more families will be able to realize this 'magic window of opportunity' to improve their lives and the lives of their children.  Nurse-Family Partnership does this through improving pregnancy outcomes by helping women engage in good preventive health practices, including thorough prenatal care from their healthcare providers, improving their diets, and reducing their use of cigarettes, alcohol and illegal substances; improving child health and development by helping parents provide responsible and competent care; and improving the economic self-sufficiency of the family by helping parents develop a vision for their own future, plan future pregnancies, continue their education and find work.
