Programs & Services


Public Health Postnatal Services

Public health nurses provide support and health assessments to mothers, newborns and their families.

Services are offered to mothers who:

  • have been discharged with their baby
  • have been discharged while their baby is still in the hospital
  • are adopting
  • have chosen adoption for their baby 
  • had a stillborn baby
  • are dealing with loss due to a neonatal (newborn) death

Public health nurses contact families within 48 hours after discharge from the hospital.  They offer support and health assessments of the newborn, mother and family. Discussions with the family guide the information and support provided. Referrals to community resources are available.
