Special Delivery Club
Canada Prenatal Nutrition Program (CPNP)
Pregnant women and new moms meet as a group once a week on Friday mornings to talk, listen to guest speakers, and get up-to-date information and lots of support around pregnancy, birth, breast feeding, nutrition, growth and development and parenting. A nutritious meal is provided, and group members are able to access free milk, fresh vegetables, additional food and prenatal vitamins. It’s a busy, fun, positive place to be!
The Special Delivery Club is co-facilitated by the Haliburton Kawartha Pine Ridge District Health Unit and SIRCH. The Group is located at the United Church in Haliburton. Transportation is provided, if needed, and qualified child care providers look after the babies, have activities for younger children such as arts, crafts and story time while the moms participate in the information session.
Way to Grow! (Community Action Program For Children)
Parents with young children, 6 or under, meet weekly on Monday afternoons in Haliburton. Parents receive information on a variety of topics, learn to cook nutritious food, and are linked with other agencies and supports that can assist them with any issues they may be dealing with (such as finances, housing, legal, personal, vocational, or social). Children’s programming provides young children with stimulating activities designed to increase their developmental skills and build social skills. Life-long friendships have been forged at Way to Grow which is fast-paced, interactive and lots of fun!
Transportation is provided, if needed, and the group is held at the United Church in Haliburton.
