The Canada Prenatal Nutrition Program (CPNP) provides pregnant women in need with nutrition counseling, support and follow-up throughout their pregnancy.
Participants will see a Public Health Dietitian for at least 4 sessions throughout their pregnancy. It's an opportunity to learn about nutrition for mom and baby (during pregnancy, breastfeeding and early infant feeding), ask questions, start preparing for baby now and just talk. Grocery store gift cards for food and prenatal vitamin supplements are also provided to those in need. The dietitian can also link clients to other services such as Brighter Futures programming, and HBHC.
If you are interested in this program, talk to your health care provider or call the Health Unit at 1-800-461-1818.
