Healthy Babies Healthy Children (HBHC)

Through the HBHC program, a public health nurse and other community service workers are available to meet with you to discuss what help and support you feel you need.  This program is for all parents that have young children up to the age of six.  The program is free.  An introductory pamphlet is available for you on the unit or at the public health unit. A questionnaire, required by the program, will be filled out on each baby delivered in Ontario.

Pamphlets, education and resource materials can be obtained on pregnancy, child and parenting subjects from the public health staff. The Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit is located at 12- 575 West Street, South, Orillia, L3V 7N6. The phone number of the Health Connection unit is (705) 721-7520. Further information is available at www.simcoehealth.org or 1-877-721-7520.

 


Breastfeeding Clinic

Early discharge frequently means that mothers and babies are discharged prior to their establishing breastfeeding patterns. Mothers need support and an opportunity to receive expert nursing advice to facilitate the continuation of breastfeeding.  This ensures that the breastfeeding is successful and that baby is gaining weight.  The clinic’s service is provided Monday to Friday between the hours of 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.  Each booked appointment lasts approximately half an hour.

 


Warmline

The warmline is a 24-hour telephone advice service that is available for new parents up to three weeks after the birth of their baby. Health teaching and post delivery information is available from nursing staff. The Warmline phone number is (705) 325-2201 ext 3667.  In the event that no one is available to answer the phone you may leave your phone number and a message on the voice mail.  If your call is not returned in four hours call the department directly at (705) 327-9123.  

 


Websites and Information Centers

Up-to-date websites and phone numbers of the numerous organizations will be kept in the BANFS department for your continuing information and use.
