Nurturing Families Network

Will I be a good parent? How do I know what’s right for my new baby? What do I do if my baby cries all the time? These are just a few of the questions you may have when you have a baby – and you are not alone. These are normal questions that many parents ask. Nurturing Families Network (NFN) can help answer your questions while you are pregnant and after your baby is born so you feel ready to take care of your baby.

FREE support can be given over the phone, at home or in a group. If you want to know more about the Nurturing Family Network, you can sign up or call about a friend: call Erica Teixeira, Wethersfield Department of Social and Youth Services, (860) 721-2977, Erica.texeira@wethersfieldct.gov.
