Nurses for Newborns strives to help any family who needs support around the arrival of their baby to further our mission of preventing intentional or unintentional infant deaths, child abuse and neglect. Referrals can be made to provide prenatal visits to expecting moms and postpartum visits to infants and caregivers who meet at least one of the following qualifications for service:
- Babies who are medically fragile (born premature or spent time in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, drug exposed, diagnosed as failure to thrive, or with congenital anomalies or birth complications) and are between 0 and 12 months old.
- Mothers with medical, mental health, intellectual, or substance abuse concerns.
- Parents 19 years old and younger needing support.
Referrals can be made by a healthcare provider, social worker, case manager, or other social services provider for any infant or caregiver living in Cheatham, Davidson, Maury, Montgomery, Robertson, Rutherford, Sumner, or Williamson counties. We are not able to accept self-referrals.
Contact NFN by phone (615) 313-9989 with any referral questions.
