Peer Parenting Support Program

Consultation has concluded


Ottawa Public Health is looking for input and ideas from expecting, new, and existing parents/caregivers to develop a Peer Parenting Support Program.

Peer support is when people share their know-how and experience while giving emotional, social and/or real-world help to each other.

Our goal is a program that will support expecting and new parents or caregivers by helping them connect with parents who have had similar experiences. Through peer matches, this program can have a great impact on parents by offering social connections, learning opportunities and ways of helping them deal with the daily stress and anxiety of parenting, improving the health of both parents and babies.

Sign up now to help develop our Peer Parenting Support program! We are looking to get your thoughts and ideas from June 17th to August 18th, 2019. Each week will feature new questions and topics so be sure to check back often!
