Community Programs

Life with a Baby

“Life With A Baby" is a free program offered by Healthy Start, Healthy Future, a registered charitable organization whose goal is to provide ongoing practical and emotional peer-based support for new and expecting parents, and parents of children up to the age of six. We offer informational seminars and programs, open forums, and fun social events.

Breastfeeding Cafe

This peer to peer drop in program is facilitated by Kirsten once a month at the Grimsby Early Years Centre. This is an excellent opportunity to meet other like-minded moms in a supportive, non judgmental environment. It’s amazing to listen to other moms stories and find out you are not alone in this journey that definitely has its ups and downs. I am also there to answer any questions you may have concerning breastfeeding.

·      This group is not intended for specific assessment questions. I will answer  your questions to the best of my ability, but in some cases, a full assessment is required to give the best possible action.

Maternal Mental Health Support Group

A six week therapeutic group facilitated by registered social worker, Emily Pollak. Topics included: Understanding depression and anxiety, Self care/wellness, Realistic Expectations, Problem Solving and Relationships. Offered at various times throughout the year.
