NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A special group of nurses is assisting Middle Tennessee families and newborns around the clock.
According to The Tennessean (http://tnne.ws/QEdzUF), Nurses for Newborns of Tennessee make home visits and follow the growth of at-risk babies to the age of 2.
Executive director Vicki Beaver says the nurses develop relationships with the family and the baby, know their history and are ready to take a phone call when the mothers need help. Support is available 24 hours a day.
The Middle Tennessee group serves families in Davidson, Maury, Montgomery, Rutherford, Sumner and Williamson counties. The nurses served 800 families last year and made 4,399 home visits.
