Healthy Pregnancy Outreach

Giving babies the best start in life

This program helps prenatal women maintain good health and have healthy babies. It provides a weekly drop-in discussion group, a cooking club and one-on-one support. The program is for women who are pregnant or whose child is six months old or less.

The Healthy Pregnancy Outreach Program is funded by the Government of Canada.

Weekly Drop-in

  • Squamish: Wednesdays – 12 to 2pm, 38024 Fourth Avenue
  • Pemberton: Tuesdays – 12 to 2pm, 1341 Aster Street

Through this program, thanks to the BC Farmers’ Market Nutrition Coupon Program, we’re able to provide parents with vouchers to the Squamish and Pemberton Farmers Markets. The BC Farmers’ Market Nutrition Coupon Program is supported by the Province of BC and the provincial Health Services Authority.

“The lunch was so helpful as a new mom. I would say above all, the woman-to-woman support that is bred from these activities was the most valuable aspect of HPOP. Food brings people together, and often having a new baby can be a very isolating time. I would have had a very different experience as a first-time mom had I not attended these activities.”
