Great Expectations



A Manitoba Healthy Baby Program

Would you like to connect with other moms-to-be and parents of children under one year of age?

Great Expectations (A MB Healthy Baby Program)

 is a community-based program designed just for you!


During a Great Expectations session, you can expect to:

  • Have a chance to meet other parents and babies;

  • Learn some fun ways to interact with your child;

  • Be presented with some interesting and pertinent information; and

  • Have the opportunity to ask questions to the Public Health Nurse and the Public Health Dietitian regarding health and nutrition for you and your family.

  • All prenatal women and parents with babies up to six months of age are eligible to receive coupons for 4 litres of milk per week provided you attend group. Bus tickets are also available if assistance with transportation is needed. This program is free of charge.


If you need to bring your older children with you, we will be providing childcare at our Heritage-Victoria CC site on Thursday afternoons. Please email Traci prior to attending if you require childcare. Please note childcare is not provided at Sturgeon Heights CC nor Westdale CC.

For more information, or if it is your first time attending, please ask to join our Facebook Page, Great Expectations (a MB Healthy Baby Program) or email Traci Wright
