Postpartum Drop-in Group
Our SCBP nurses and breastfeeding specialists Marlene Hutzulak ,Alison Rolfe, Philippa Lyons and Caroline Philippson are very involved in your care after your baby is born. Their focus is on helping you to establish breastfeeding and adjust to your new and exciting - and sometimes overwhelming - roles of becoming new parents. Our nurse, Caroline Philippson, also runs a postpartum drop-in group every Wednesday afternoon. Her groups are designed to help your family adjust to your new lives as a parents. No sign-up is needed - just come on down if you feel like it or the topic moves you! A different topic is scheduled each week with guest speakers - Shannon is famous for helping the topics go with the flow……Moms and dads are both welcome to attend with their bambino. Below is the list of topics.
Our drop-in workshops are by donation, to help us pay an honourarium to our guest speakers. A minimum $5 donation is suggested. Drop-ins may become closed if the room is overfull. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience.
