Best Babies is a Canadian Prenatal Nutrition Program facilitated by Fernwood NRG with funding from the Public Health Agency of Canada.

Perinatal classes run on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 11:30am-1:30pm. These groups are for pregnant or post-pregnant people. Parents are welcome to bring their infant’s siblings if needed as well as one support person.

Sessions open with a shared meal, and are followed by an educational topic and discussion led by staff and various community professionals. Our public health nurse, family support worker, and community support worker are available for support.

  • Educational sessions

  • Monthly food vouchers
  • Good Food Box produce
  • Prenatal vitamins and vitamin D drops
