Maternal Child Health
Maternal Child Health program supports First Nation families from pregnancy to child birth and beyond, helping families through the many joys and challenges of having a baby. The Kwiyo:s, or “respected aunty” provides support with education, parenting skills, life skills and early childhood development. As well, each Kwiyo:s is Birth Doula and Postpartum Doula trained and can physically and emotionally support pregnant women through the process of giving birth, and in their new roles as mothers.
The goal of the Kwiyo:s Program is to increase the healthy outcomes of First Nations children by providing support prior to and after the child is born.
