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 public health dietitian. Some of the topics presented include:
adjusting to parenthood
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.
?Some of our groups are for parents of infants and others are for parents of toddlers. Call the group to find out the target age range.
