These resources are a great way to prepare for the discussions in your prenatal appointments, look into topics in more detail, or to have a written resource to refer to when you begin your first few weeks with your newborn.
The following materials are provided to you as resources for discussions that will occur during appointments with your midwife. They are not intended as a replacement for any information given to you by your midwife. If you have questions about any of the content please ask your midwife during your next appointment.
The OMama website and accompanying apps have launched, providing Ontario families with a new resource on pregnancy, birth and early childhood. OMama is a joint project between BORN Ontario, CHEO and eHealth Ontario.
