Parenting in Peterborough

Whether you are pregnant, a new parent, or a parent of a teen, there is information here for you.

During your baby’s first year there is so much to learn for moms, dads and even grandparents. There are programs and services available both at the health unit and in our community to support you.

If you are breastfeeding for the first time this can take time to learn and it can help to know where to get breastfeeding support.

By the time your child is 18 months old they will have already had many of their immunizations and will now be ready for their 18-Month Well-Baby Visit with your health care provider.

As your child grows into a toddler, preschooler, school age child, and then a teenager, you’ll want to know what to expect of their development and where to find answers. Here you will find credible links to many websites and local organizations.
