Family Nurse Partnership

What we do

We offer a voluntary programme for young first time mothers (and their partners). Our specially-trained nurses provide regular home visits, from early pregnancy and can work with you up until your child is aged two. The Family Nurse Partnership uses methods on attachment, relationships and becoming independent. Your family nurse will build a trusting and supportive relationship with you and your family and if you decide to join you will be allocated a Family Nurse who works with you. Together you will decide what to cover in each visit to help you achieve your goals and become the best parent you can be.

Your family nurse will help you:

  • increase your chances of a healthy pregnancy
  • improve your child's development
  • build a positive relationship with your baby and others
  • plan for the future
  • make lifestyle choices that gives your child the best possible start in life
  • achieve your aspirations such as finding a job or returning to education

Please contact us or your midwife if:

  • You are 19 years old or under and under 28 weeks pregnant
  • You live in Warwickshire
  • You would like to have the opportunity to have a family nurse to help you have a healthy pregnancy and be the best mum you can

If you would like to join the Family Nurse Partnership:

  • If you live in South Warwickshire or Rugby, please contact Family Nurse Supervisor on Tel: 01926 567155 or 07808 763319
  • If you live in North Warwickshire, please contact Family Nurse Supervisor on Tel: 02476 491138 or 01675 461966 or 07808763322

We hope to be able to give everyone a place on the programme, however, if the programme is full you will be supported by other services and your midwife will help with this.

Dads or partners are welcome to join in if the mum would like them to.

Health For Under 5s

Stop Smoking in Pregnancy

What we do

At your first appointment with your Midwife you will be asked to do a simple breath test for carbon monoxide (CO). CO is a toxic gas released from tobacco smoke, exhaust fumes and faulty gas appliances. CO is extremely harmful to you and your baby:

  • Each time you smoke your baby is deprived of the oxygen s/he needs to grow for about 20 minutes
  • It deprives your muscles, brain and body tissues of oxygen
  • It damages your placenta
  • It restricts the oxygen supply to your baby
  • It can lead to poor growth, premature birth and still birth

Why should you quit smoking?

The earlier you stop the better. But it’s never too late to quit!

  • Your baby will feel the benefits straight away
  • You will reduce the risk of your baby being born underweight and under-developed

You and your baby will be free from CO in less than 24 hours


  • More money to spend on you and your baby
  • More time to spend with your family
  • Reduced stress and anxiety
  • Better health in the future

We want you to have the best chance of a healthy and happy baby so we refer all smokers to the NHS Stop Smoking in Pregnancy Service for help to quit.

We’re not here to tell you to stop. We’re here to help if you want to quit.

We’re here to give you honest, unbiased support to help you take steps towards a healthy, smoke-free pregnancy. We offer free Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) to all our clients, including patches and gum to help you quit, and are always on hand to answer any questions or concerns you might have.

Our specialist advisors are available to come to your home to chat through the options and work with you, one to one, to help you achieve your goal. We know everyone is different and our advisors have the knowledge and experience to help find the best way forward for you. And it doesn’t end with just one session. We will be there for you with regular appointments throughout your pregnancy to help, encourage and advise.

Normally, you can access our services by being referred by your midwife but if you want to call us FREE on 07917 227004 and tell us you are pregnant and would like to quit smoking we will put you in touch with your local Stop Smoking in Pregnancy Advisor, and a home visit will be arranged.

You are up to 4 times more likely to stop smoking successfully with the NHS Stop Smoking Service by your side, than if you go it alone.
