Healthy Babies, Healthy Children (HBHC)

A free home visiting program for pregnant women and families with children from birth until transition to school.

  • Service in the language you speak
  • We are here to answer your questions about pregnancy and parenting; call us at: 613-580-6744.

 After your baby is born, a Public Health Nurse will:

  • Call you to assess your health and the health of your newborn
  • Offer support and answer your questions about such things as parenting, feeding, safety, and growth and development

 As your child grows, we can help by:

  • Providing information about different programs in your community
  • Connecting you and your family to resources
  • Based on your needs and goals, your family may benefit from home visits from a Public Health Nurse, Social Worker and Family Visitor.

You can also speak with a Public Health Nurse at one of our Parenting in Ottawa Drop-ins.
