Service members and family members are put in uniquely stressful situations, such as lengthy deployments and frequent moves, often with limited support. Add the normal anxieties of pregnancy and a new baby, and the stress can be overwhelming. The New Parent Support Program is in place to help service members and their spouses adjust to the rigorous demands of parenthood. It is designed to promote healthy family functioning, child development, and positive parent-child interactions. Home visitation is a key component of the program.
