Prenatal Education and Support

Pregnant? Chances are you have many questions. Eastern Health's prenatal programs may have the answers about:
  • Your changing body
  • Staying healthy
  • Getting ready for the birth of your baby
  • Becoming a new parent
Prenatal education and support is available in group settings and also one-on-one with individuals based on need. Group sessions are offered in a variety of settings, including the Health Sciences Centre and in our regional Community Health Offices.

Community health nurses also support the services offered through community partners such as Healthy Baby Clubs

Our prenatal education programs are flexible and designed to best meet the needs of a pregnant woman and her family.

We are actively looking for an alternative e-learning platform to meet the needs of women and families across the region. For more information about prenatal education, please visit our
