Staff of our Family Health (FH) provide information, resources and support to help ensure the children in our communities grow up healthy. We provide education and support to people wanting to become parents, to pregnant women and to new parents and their babies.
Through the Healthy Babies, Healthy Children program, our FH staff encourage the well-being of families through personal visits to new moms. As well, we provide information and support on breastfeeding, and the care of infants and young children. They offer programs that provide support to parents in everything from playing and reading with children to developing stronger parenting skills.
