Healthy Baby

Baby Steps—-A Healthy Baby program is funded by Healthy Child Manitoba. Healthy Baby is a community support program for mothers to be and mothers with babies up to 1 year of age. Baby Steps is an opportunity to come together with other parents to share and learn in a friendly casual setting. Sessions occur once to twice monthly (depending on the community site) and focus on topics such as pre/postnatal health, nutrition, early child development and parenting. Sessions last 2-3 hours. Parents can receive up to 16 liters of free milk coupons at the Healthy Baby session if they are pregnant or have a baby up to 6 months of age. Healthy Baby also offers a prenatal benefit program for families with an income less than $32,000/yr. Please call 1-888-848-0140 for further information. For more information on the Healthy Baby program within the Assiniboine Region please contact your local Public Health Nurse or Healthy Baby Coordinator at (204) 476-7842.
