We offer a variety of free prenatal classes to the residents of Peel.

  • Adult prenatal classes - offered in the evening or on weekends.
  • Online prenatal program - if you cannot attend group classes and like learning online.

Our clinics are welcoming to all families, whether your baby is breastfeeding a lot or a little.

Because breastfeeding is a learned skill, it's best for babies and their families to get help early and often.

Mothers and their support person meet one-on-one with a nurse in a private room to assess how the baby’s feeding is going, and to receive professional advice and support.

Our baby feeding services are empowering, supportive, and informative.

Regular clinic hours: Monday to Friday: 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Walk-in or make an appointment by calling us at 905-799-7700, Caledon 905-584-2216.

About 20% of mothers and up to 14% of fathers will experience a postpartum mood disorder (PMD). It's not anyone's fault, but it's very important for you and your family to get help early.

Peel Postpartum Mood Disorder Program offers information and community resources about PMD for families and health professionals in Peel.

Part of the program includes the Distress Centres of Greater Toronto Helpline giving caring emotional telephone support for women and their families during pregnancy and after the birth of baby.
