Welcome Baby Members
This Welcome Baby Members Page is for people who have registered for the Welcome Baby Program.
If you're not currently a member and would like to join please visit the Prenatal Nutrition Program page to learn more. You must join during your pregnancy and then you can continue until your baby is 6 months old.
Childminding for children under 6 years of age is only available at one of our groups, Compass Community Health.
Children over one year of age cannot attend the other groups at this time. Check back for updates to see when other
groups will have childminding in the future.
