Programs for Parents and Children
Child Health Clinics
Child Health Clinics are held weekly throughout Burnaby. While nurses counsel parents and administer vaccines, volunteers weigh and measure infants, look after siblings when necessary and keep the clinic running smoothly. These clinics are held at Cameron Recreation Centre, Deer Lake, Edmonds, Eileen Dailly Pool Centre, and South Burnaby United Church Hall.
Breast Feeding Clinics
Breast Feeding Clinics are held twice a week on Wednesdays at McGill Library and on Thursdays at Tommy Douglas Library in the afternoon. Volunteers will assure your comfort and weigh and measure your baby.
Parent and Infant Clinics
This program is held on Monday mornings at the Bonsor Recreation Complex. The public health nurse answers questions about baby growth and development and discusses topics of interest to new parents.
Volunteers provide gentle guidance and a helping hand in caring for your newborn. You can take this time to do housework or get some much needed rest. Cuddle program referrals come through Public Health Nurses. The Cuddle Program was developed by the City and has been so successful, it has attracted positive attention from other communities who want to replicate the program.
