Expecting? Health for Two is for You!

Pregnant mothers have a new resource available to them through the Edmonton Garrison Military Family Resource Centre (MFRC). Health for Two is an Alberta Health Services program that supports expectant mothers through pregnancy and two months post-birth. The program aims to provide care in various ways such as information, education, and access to health care professionals, and nutritional help throughout the tender time of pregnancy and birth. Perks of the program include access to milk coupons, bus tickets and prenatal vitamins.

Being part of a military family can sometimes present challenges navigating health supports and building a sense of community, Health for Two aims to assist with those challenges while supporting healthy families and healthy pregnancies. 

The Health for Two program will provide military families with more than just professional support, it will also be a connection to community peer support as well. The program is able to give mothers the opportunity to get together and learn from each other, especially as they navigate the journey of parenting.

MFRC facilitators Nancy Defer and Tiffany Roy are very excited to provide the program. Past facilitator Amy Russell stated “It has been a rewarding experience to meet parents and be able to help them through. Sometimes it can be difficult to know where they can turn to for information about little known and discussed situations in pregnancy. Helping mothers find that information and working through it alongside them, how can you not feel good about providing this program?”  

If you are interested in this program or know someone who could benefit, please call the MFRC at (780) 973-4011 ext. 6300 and connect with a program facilitator to set up an appointment.
