Delhi Community Health Centre is offering new programming for expectant parents.
The new prenatal and newborn health program is being offered through a collaboration among multiple practices with the Delhi family health team.
Some of the groups being offered include development milestones, postpartum yoga and infant sleep.
Expectant parents can be referred to the groups by a family doctor, or they can refer themselves by calling the centre.
“If you see us for the pregnancy, you don’t need to see a physician for the pregnancy,” said Amanda Kocheff, a registered midwife at the health centre.
Lactation support, baby care, mental health support and prenatal nutrition are some of the focuses of the program.
Kocheff noted that first-time moms will benefit from the programming.
The program does not offer home births or midwifery led deliveries.
