Term: Healthy Baby Community Support Programs
Last Updated: 2010-11-17
A set of programs available to all women from the prenatal period through to an infant's first birthday. Led by the Province of Manitoba Healthy Baby Program, community support programs offer social support and informal learning opportunities to encourage early, regular prenatal care and promote healthy infant development. These programs aim to build women's confidence and awareness of health and parenting choices, foster awareness of babies' nurturing needs, offer and encourage healthy eating through cooking and nutrition activities (Healthy Child Manitoba, 2010).
