Community-Based Family Administered Neonatal Activities


This training prepares home visitors to use the Community-Based Family Administered Neonatal Activities (FANA) during home visits with expectant and new parents to help strengthen the bond with their fetus and newborn.

The Community-Based FANA is an innovative approach to home visiting services for adolescent parents. It provides a structure and activities to help young expectant and new parents bond with their fetus and newborn, beginning in the third trimester of pregnancy and continuing through the first month after birth. This two-day training introduces the Community-Based FANA and demonstrates a variety of pre- and post-natal activities and interventions designed to promote an understanding and strong attachment between mother and child. This training is the first step in becoming certified to use the Community- Based FANA. The next step requires fieldwork experience and demonstration of skill acquisition in the context of individual mentorship. On-going technical assistance is available to address questions and concerns that arise during the mentoring process.
