Healthy Families

Our Healthy Family Program at the Youth Clinic was designed to help families who may be experiencing Postpartum Depression and other Postpartum mood disorders such as anxiety. Our goal is to help you access support within the community (health care providers, mental health care providers, support groups, etc.), as well as to provide one-on-one support for you as you care for your new baby.

Healthy Measures

Healthy Measures Program makes sure that you and your newborn get off to a healthy start. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that all babies, whether bottle-fed or breastfed, be seen 1-3 days after being discharged from the hospital. At this appointment, our lactation consultants will also work with breastfeeding mothers to provide medical advice and answer any questions they may have about nursing.

Feeding Your 6-12 Month Old

At about 6 months of age, your baby will be ready to start eating solid foods. This class will help you know what foods are best to introduce first, how to know when to move on to different types of foods, what foods to avoid, and how to help your child become an independent eater and share at the family table.
