You may be expecting your first baby or busy with a toddler. That means you have your hands full and may have questions. Thankfully, help is at hand. The New Parent Support Program is a free service for military parents.
The program focuses on one-on-one support through home visits. Parenting classes and playgroups may also be available at some locations. Staff members include nurses, social workers and home visitation specialists.
The program’s home visitors understand the challenges of military life. They can share tools for successful parenting during PCS, deployment and more.
New Parent Support Program staff are child development professionals, including registered nurses, clinical social workers, or para-professionals trained in the delivery and practice of established home visiting models.
The program is available to military families who are expecting a baby or have kids 3 or younger. Marine Corps eligibility includes families with at least one child under 5.
The New Parent Support Program has a specialized team of registered nurses who can provide military families with support through home visitation. Parenting is not easy. Understanding what to expect with pregnancy, newborns and toddlers can be challenging and overwhelming.
Our skilled nurses have extensive, up-to-date expertise plus years of experience on pregnancy and parenting children from birth to age 3. You will be connected with your own personal nurse who can provide you with the latest information on a healthy pregnancy, labor and delivery, feeding options, growth and development, nutrition, bonding, family health issues, safety, problem-solving and more. During home visits, you will receive individualized education and support tailored to meet the needs of you and your family.
