Healthy Start for Mom & Me

(Winnipeg, Manitoba)

Jeans… camaraderie… acceptance… snacks… neighbourhood-based adult education for expectant and new families with babies up to one year…other practical supports. It adds up to an enthusiastic, collaborative support to families of all sorts and sizes and cultures and challenges and strengths.

Operating since 1997 and named by young mothers who were involved in planning this outreach initiative, we now see 1300-1400 women a year and well over 80% are breastfeeding. The low birth weight rate is averaging 6% – which in a “high risk” population is an encouraging change for the better. Healthy Start for Mom & Me is funded by the Canada Prenatal Nutrition Program (Public Health Agency of Canada) and the Healthy Baby program (Healthy Child Manitoba). Healthy Start for Mom & Me is incorporated as a non-profit organization, and is a registered charity.
