Healthy Parents, Healthy Children

Healthy Children & Families

Healthy Parents, Healthy Children (HPHC) is a practical guide to pregnancy and being a parent. It was created in response to a need to have standardized pregnancy, birth and early childhood resources within Alberta Health Services.

HPHC has reliable information based on evidence and best practice for expectant parents, parents of children up to six years of age and healthcare providers who work with these families. Two print books were created, HPHC: Pregnancy and Birth, and HPHC: The Early Years.

The HPHC resources were evaluated in 2014 with a broad range of Alberta parents and healthcare providers. Findings showed that these resources were well received by all audiences. Among parents who had received at least one book or visited the online resource, 50% reported a change in behaviour as a result of reading the resources. Feedback is reviewed and improvements are made on an ongoing basis.
