Healthy Babies Healthy Children Program

Healthy Babies Healthy Children (HBHC) is a voluntary program for women and their families in the prenatal period and families with children from birth until their transition to school. 

HBHC offers support in the home (assessment, teaching, referral and service coordination) for every child and parent identified with challenges to provide opportunities to achieve  healthy pregnancy, nutrition and feeding (including breastfeeding), healthy child development,  safety, adjusting to parenthood, accessing community resources , and more. 

The purpose of Healthy Babies Healthy Children is to help children get a healthy start in life through:  

  • Screening and assessments to identify those families that may benefit from more support
  • Visits provided in-home by a public health nurse and family home visitor
  • Help in connecting with community programs and resources

*Self-referral is encouraged, however, 3rd party referrals accepted with client consent.
