Giving babies the best start in life
This program helps pre and post-natal women maintain good physical and mental health and have healthy babies. It provides a weekly drop-in discussion group, a cooking club, and one-on-one support. The program is for women who are pregnant or whose child is six months old or less.

“The lunch was so helpful as a new mom. I would say above all, the woman-to-woman support that is bred from these activities was the most valuable aspect of HPOP. Food brings people together, and often having a new baby can be a very isolating time. I would have had a very different experience as a first-time mom had I not attended these activities.”
