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 facilitated by a public health nurse or another health care expert such as a community dental hygienist. Some of the topics for discussion may include:
adjusting to parenthood
perinatal or postpartum depression
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.
?Drop in is every Thursday from 1:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.
There is free parking available and located along the bus route.
