Parent-Infant Drop-In - Parkgate Community Health Centre

We provide new parents with the chance to connect with and get support from other parents and health care professionals to discuss infant growth and development, nutrition, safety and adjustment to parenthood. 

Each session is presented by a public health nurse or another health care expert such as a community nutritionist. Some of the topics presented include:

  • breastfeeding

  • nutrition

  • immunization

  • safety

  • dental care

  • adjusting to parenthood

  • play

  • preparing for return to work and more

At each session, you will also have plenty of time for conversation with other parents and to get your questions answered by the public health nurse. 

This service is free.
