Nova Scotia’s "Healthy Babies, Health Families: Postpartum & Postnatal Guidelines, Second Edition" now available

Healthy Babies, Healthy Families: Postpartum & Postnatal Guidelines, Second Edition is a much-needed revision of the original postpartum and postnatal guidelines from 2002.  Many individuals and groups from the IWK and NSHA provided input throughout the revision process, as did representatives of organizations that work with families experiencing a variety of circumstances.  

The document describes care and services for heathy populations and contains guidance in four key areas: Reducing Health Inequities; Promoting and Supporting Healthy Infant Development; Promoting and Supporting Parent Postpartum Physical and Emotional Well-Being; and Supporting Healthy Transitions and Follow-up.
