That’s what Ottawa Public Health is creating a new program to help connect expecting and new parents and caregivers with those already parenting to share their experiences and know-how

If you’re a parent, a caregiver, and are expecting or even just thinking of having or adopting a child, we would like to hear from you to help plan this program.
