Nurse Family Partnership brings first-time moms and nurses together

Nurse Arzelia Lopez is heading to her next work appointment in East Oakland.

Her client, Jasmine Jurado, is 19 — she has a toddler, who’s 14 months old. It’s been Lopez’s job, since Jurado was pregnant, to provide her with parenting support, both emotional and medical.

Lopez says her goal for today’s appointment is to test the baby’s ASQ. “We’re about to do the 14 months ASQ to see how [the baby’s] doing developmentally,” she says.
