Home Visits - Healthy Babies, Healthy Children

Being pregnant as well as having a baby can bring a lot of change into your life. We are here to help!

The Healthy Babies, Healthy Children program provides home visiting, to expectant mothers and families with children from birth to their transition to school. This program is designed to help parents who need more support to give their children a healthy start.

A public health nurse is available to:

  • Meet with you at your home to discuss how we can help your family 
  • Assess your family's health, including your child's growth and development, mental health, parenting challenges and stresses affecting your family
  • Provide health teaching, counselling, and active support
  • Help you to connect with community resources
  • Involve other members of her team - family visitors and a social worker, as needed

The service is available in the language that you speak and there is no cost to you for this service.

For more information on the Healthy Babies, Healthy Children program check out the Healthy Babies, Healthy Children brochure. Note this pamphlet is also available in multiple languages on the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services’ website.
