E’pit Nuji Ilmuet (Prenatal) Program

“Having a Healthy Baby, There’s so much to think about”

Our Goal:

To promote good pre and post natal care to off-reserve Aboriginal women expecting or nursing an infant.

Serving:

All off-reserve Aboriginal women expecting or nursing infants who have the greatest need and whose social and economic conditions cause a higher risk for prenatal nutrition deficiency.

How We Help:

An Aboriginal E’pit Nuji Ilmuet (Prenatal) Facilitator delivers this program to expectant and nursing mothers through individual home visits and workshops.

The program promotes good pre and post natal care, the importance of good nutrition, breast- feeding and economical food preparation.

Provide food supplements of milk and orange juice available for those expectant or nursing mothers whose need is greatest, up to a 28 week period.

A Nutrition Consultant (Dietician) works closely with the Facilitators and can provide individual nutrition counselling or nutrition information sessions.
