Prenatal education promotes wellness and the prevention of illness by providing information and support to pregnant women, their partners and families to ensure they have the information and resources they need to make informed decisions for their own and their baby's physical and emotional health.
Health and Wellness supports healthy pregnancy through healthy public policy, provincial standards, strategies and initiatives.
Public Health Services in Nova Scotia provides prenatal education and support to pregnant women and their families.
For information on prenatal education and support programs, contact your local Public Health Services office.
In 2005, the provincial public health prenatal education and support program framework was completed. The framework supports the implementation of Public Health Services prenatal education and support programs.
