Healthy Babies Healthy Children Program

The Healthy Babies Healthy Children Program (HBHC) is a home visiting program. Healthy Babies Healthy Children provides eligible families with information, support and connections to community resources.

In this program, parents are connected with a public health nurse and a family visitor. They offer support and services to meet the needs of parents on topics like:

  • Having a healthy pregnancy and birth
  • Connecting with their baby
  • How children grow and develop and what care givers can do to help
  • Being a parent
  • Breastfeeding, food and healthy nutrition
  • Taking care of themselves and their family
  • Other services available to care givers and their child in the community

Parents work with their support team to decide which topics to cover in the home visits.


Cost

This service is provided at no cost.
