Planning for pregnancy doesn't just mean decorating the nursery. Ensuring that you and your partner are healthy before you decide to have a baby is very important.

Once you are pregnant there are some things you should also be aware of that could affect you and your baby.  Topics like weight gain, vitamin and mineral supplements, food safety and your mental health are important for a healthy pregnancy. Read on through our resources to find out all this information and more.  If you would like to speak to a Public Health Nurse for any additional information, call 519-383-8331 ext. 3817.
