Pregnant mothers are provided with nutritional supplements and the support of a Resource Mother. Prenatal education hospital tours, breastfeeding support and nutritional information are included in the Healthy Baby Club. Assistance with child care and transportation may be provided if needed.
The main goal of the program is to promote good nutrition and positive lifestyle choices during pregnancy so that participants have healthy pregnancies and healthy babies.

Postnatal Support Programs
We offer a number of programs and services for new parents.
Baby and Me is an informal support group for parents and/or caregivers and their children 0-12 months. Parents and/or caregivers and children can come together to chat and play in a comfortable environment where you can ask questions and get advice from other parents. Information sessions on a variety of topics such as safety, making your own baby food, the importance of play, and infant massage are also included on occasion.
Breastfeeding support is also offered on a one-on-one basis through our Healthy Baby Club.
