Are you having a baby? The Building Healthy Babies program would like to help your baby be born at a healthy weight. Babies born at unhealthy weights are more likely to have health problems in their first year of life and beyond. The Building Healthy Babies program offers group teaching on pregnancy, nutrition, breastfeeding, and infant care; support from Public Health Nurses and a Dietitian; and support from other moms.
The Building Healthy Babies program is offered across Chatham-Kent at the locations and times listed below. Childcare supports are provided in partnership with the Early ON Child and Family Centres.
Funding for this program is provided in part by the Government of Canada.
