Pre-Natal & Post Natal Support

Are you pregnant or a new mom and need information or support on prenatal care, breastfeeding, good nutrition, or exercise?  We have a Pre/Post Natal Facilitator available to support you. We can help you to prepare for your labour and birth by:

  • exploring various coping strategies and comfort measures
  • looking at different types of births and possible variations
  • having a look at the newborn and infant feeding
  • learning how to care for yourself after having a baby
  • providing a hospital tour

In addition, we can help you after the birth of your baby with newborn care and breastfeeding support.

Private in-home or office visits can be arranged.  We also have counselling and support groups available.

The Thunder Bay District Health Unit partners with us to provide a Public Health Nurse at our weekly Morning Munchies drop in programs. She is available to discuss any concerns that you may have about yourself or your baby. She can also weigh your baby, help with breastfeeding questions and support.  We provide pre/post natal supports in a variety of our programs for free!

You’re welcome to attend 1 or more of the Virtual Sessions in the month.  Email ppn@ourkidscount.ca to register.
