Group Name: Regent Park Community Health Centre – Prenatal and Postnatal Programs
Description: Regent Park Community Health Centre (RPCHC) was established in 1973. It is a non-profit, community-based organization dedicated to improving the health of Regent Park area residents and the community as a whole, by providing high quality, integrated primary health care services, health promotion services and community capacity building. Our priority is to reduce the health inequities experienced by low-income, immigrant & refugee, non-status and marginally-housed & homeless populations.
Women enter the CPNP program when they are pregnant and continue until their babies are 6 months old. Weekly sessions include nutrition workshops, information about pregnancy and children’s development, healthy snacks, assistance with transportation (TTC tickets) and a $10 grocery voucher.
Workshop topics cover subjects such as nutrition, health education, labour & delivery, breastfeeding, postpartum depression, infant crying and baby massage. There is support from nurses, a dietician, social workers, family home visitors and a lactation consultant. *** Serves women living north of Lakeshore, south of Gerrard, east of Church, west of River.
