Contact & General Info

For Your Appointment

No referral is needed. Women can drop in, or call to make an appointment.

Please remember to bring your Alberta Healthcare card and a piece of photo ID to your appointment.

Finding Us

Our program is located in the Public Health clinic. Please check in at reception on the ground floor of the main building.

What to Expect

You can expect to meet with one of our female family care doctors, and Registered Nurses (RNs) throughout your pregnancy, and for the first six weeks after birth.

Your first appointment will usually be with a Registered Nurse, and will last at least an hour. During this appointment, the RN will review your medical and pregnancy history, as well as answer any questions you may have.

You may be asked to provide a urine sample and have your weight checked. The RN will also check your blood pressure and listen to your baby’s heartbeat.

The RN will provide teaching on how to have a healthy pregnancy, provide pregnancy bloodwork, and organize connections to community resources as required.  The program can help with bus tickets to help you get to appointments and milk coupons.

Post-Delivery Care

After your birth, the staff at CPP will continue to follow you for the first six weeks, providing care to you and your baby. The staff can help with referrals to a family doctor for ongoing care if you don’t already have a family doctor, and provide birth control counselling.
