Healthy Pregnancy

The Northwestern Health Unit provides education and support in all communities for pregnant women and their families.
Having a healthy pregnancy is important. By living a healthy lifestyle during pregnancy, a woman can help her baby grow and develop properly and get the best start in life.
There are many resources available to individuals, parents and families wanting more information about healthy pregnancy.
Staying healthy and safe during pregnancy
Health unit public health nurses provide prenatal education classes for new moms and mothers expecting their next child. Many different prenatal education formats are available to help meet the needs of different moms – group or one-on-one sessions, as well as refresher courses for moms who attended the class in the past. Learn more about the topics covered during the prenatal education course.

Public Health Question
  • Q:
    Can I use fluoridated toothpaste on my baby's teeth?
    Do not use toothpaste with fluoride until your child is able to spit out; usually around age 3. Until then, just use water or a non-fluoridated toothpaste.​
