Best Babies (Colwood)

Best Babies is funded through the Island Health Authority (IHA) and offers support to pregnant families and their newborns up to 6-8 weeks of age. Participants attend weekly group sessions that cover topics including prenatal education, health, nutrition and infant care. Participants are provided with a nutritious frozen meal to take home. Parents also receive snacks, food vouchers, bus tickets, vitamins, information and other support when needed. Weekly discussions are led by a Public Health Nurse, Dietician, Dental Hygienist or BGC Youth & Family Counsellor.
