FROM A NOVEMBER 4 GREY BRUCE HEALTH UNIT MEDIA RELEASE — The Grey Bruce Health Unit has launched a new mobile-friendly online prenatal education program from pre-conception to early childhood. Using the YoMingo® platform, the free program is made up of web-based “chapters” including audio and visual elements, evidence-based information and links to other sites and supports.
For those that prefer in-person prenatal education, the online program can support those classes. Online education is available anytime, anywhere, on many types of devices. Its accessibility overcomes barriers to in-person prenatal classes including transportation, childcare, time and schedules. The Grey Bruce Health Unit partners with local hospitals that offer prenatal classes and will refer clients to their programs.
To register for YoMingo®, visit www.publichealthgreybruce.on.ca
Clients registered with the previous Gift of Motherhood online prenatal program will continue to have access to the program for six months from the time of registration.
Pregnancy, caregiving and child rearing can be exciting, challenging and uncertain all at the same time. It takes a village to raise a child - the Grey Bruce Health Unit is providing support for that concept.
At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.
South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.
Please consider supporting South Grey News with a modest donation and let us know that our efforts are appreciated. Thank you.
