Prenatal Residential Program

Type of Service

Residential Treatment - Mental Health

Program Description

Most of our young moms begin in the Prenatal residence. In this group-living setting, 15 young women, aged 13-21 and babies are supported by residential counsellors and social workers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The young women arrive at any time during pregnancy, and they and their babies stay for up to six months after delivery. The goals of the Prenatal Residential program include:
-birth of healthy babies
-early bonding
-effective newborn support and care
-teaching life skills for parenting and independent living
The pregnant and parenting adolescents actively participate in the design of their plan of care, individualized for each new young woman and designed to focus on their strengths. As part of this plan, pregnant adolescents and new moms must participate in structured program activities such as:
-secondary school
-group activities
-medical appointments
-counselling (individual and/or family/relationship)
-health and wellness sessions
-prenatal classes
-work or pre-employment preparation
