Birthing Centre

Healthy New Beginnings

Healthy New Beginnings visits are for expecting mothers or anyone who is wanting to become pregnant and would like some health teaching.

Patients are seen early in their pregnancy, usually before they see their doctor, between 6-12 weeks pregnant; however they are welcome at anytime in the pregnancy.

During the visit patients will meet with an Registered Nurse to review past medical history, answer questions, and discuss ways to promote a healthy pregnancy.
