Prenatal Nutrition Program

DSC_2819

The Aboriginal Prenatal Nutrition Program will provide community, culture-based holistic programs and services to improve the health outcomes of Aboriginal mothers and their babies (pre-natal to 6 months). We aim to support Aboriginal Moms to address any challenges they may face that put their health and the health of their infant at risk. Programs are also designed to include fathers and extended family, and women contemplating pregnancy

The Aboriginal Prenatal Nutrition Program will provide support and guidance within a cultural framework to urban Aboriginal families expecting a new baby and their babies. The program will provide coaching and hands-on opportunities to support a healthy pregnancy and a healthy outcome for babies. We will support Mom and Dad to enhance their parenting and caregiving capacity as well as support healthy family dynamics and attachment.
