Healthy Babies Healthy Children Program

The Healthy Babies Healthy Children (HBHC) program is a free home-visiting program for people that are expecting and new parents with a child up to transition to school who need additional support with:

  • prenatal health care;
  • preparing for a new baby;
  • building strong relationships;
  • feeding a toddler;
  • managing a child’s behaviour;
  • being a positive parent; and
  • connecting to helpful services in Renfrew County and District.

Skilled Public Health Nurses, Social Workers and Home Visitors visit with parents and their family at home. The visits can be arranged Monday to Friday during business hours (08:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.). The number of visits and the length of each visit will depend on individual needs.
