The nurse practitioner in this clinic provides mothers and babies who live in the region and have no family physician with:
- All prenatal care including blood work and ultrasound tests;
- Education about pregnancy and self-care to promote a healthy pregnancy and baby; and,
- Assessments and follow-up care for baby, with check-ups in the first, second, fourth and eighth weeks of life. The first set of immunizations will be given at the eight week visit.
