Giving babies the best start in life
This program helps pre and post-natal women maintain good physical and mental 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.

“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.”
