Nurses for Newborns – Missouri

Located in St. Louis, Missouri since 1991, Nurses for Newborns (NFN) provides compassionate care, support, and resources to expecting mothers, babies, and their families regardless of their race, religion, wealth, or geographic location.

All services are provided at NO COST to the families served.

A Healthy Start

At Nurses for Newborns, we believe that every baby should be as safe and healthy as possible and their families strong and confident in their care. Healthy pregnancy and infancy build the foundation for a lifetime of wellness. When babies are born too early or too small or in rough conditions, the dream of a healthy, vibrant life can be shattered before they have a chance to reach their 1st birthday.

A Promising Approach

Our home visitation program provides a safety net for families in order to prevent infant mortality, child abuse, and neglect

Medical/Mental Health

Nurses provide health and developmental assessments & social workers assist with environmental and mental health concerns.


Topics and tools are designed to address identified issues, support family strengths, and improve parenting skills.

Peer Support

Community Health Workers provide language interpretation and cultural competency, and can assist with community resources.

Material Support

Items such as diapers, formula, and safety equipment are provided to promote the health and safety of both mother and child.
