Regional Prenatal Pilot Program

Regional Prenatal Pilot Program

Inuvialuit Regional Corporation (IRC) is working with partners to deliver a prenatal program where expectant mothers who are staying at the boarding home can participate in weekly workshop sessions, daily physical activities, nutrition projects and develop a baby bag of resources for healthy living with newborns.

IRC will work closely with the Beaufort-Delta Health and Social Services Authority, Government of Northwest Territories Department of Health and Social Services and early childhood development staff, along with the sister project at the Vital Abel Boarding Home in Ndilo, a Dene community near Yellowknife.

IRC will have the support of elders during this project. They partcipate by sharing their knowledge in the areas of sewing, cooking and overall well-being.
