A Hug Can Go a Long Way

Nurse-Family Partnership begins to visit vulnerable, first-time moms during pregnancy - this is in order to work with the mom to have the healthiest pregnancy possible and to reduce the risks of preterm birth.

"Perhaps the most widespread peril children face isn't guns, swimming pools or speeding cars. Rather, scientists are suggesting that it may be "toxic stress" early in life, or even before birth." - Nicholas Kristof, New York Times Article, "This Poverty Solution Starts with a Hug" January 8, 2012.

Check out the link below for the full story - your support of Nurse-Family Partnership helps to reduce the "toxic stress' in some of the highest risk families.
