In addition to being a sought-after choice for giving birth, the Ottawa Birth and Wellness Centre aims to become a ‘one-stop shop’ for Ottawa families, from pre-conception right through the early years with your children. Our Wellness Centre focuses on exactly that! We host a wide range of services that are open to all members of the public, not only midwifery clients or those registered to give birth at the Centre. By renting space to service providers offering classes and services aligned with the mission of the Centre, women and families are able to access a range of services, carefully ‘curated’ with a holistic wellness vision in mind.
In addition, Ottawa Public Health runs a weekly free Healthy Babies Express drop-in every Wednesday from 9:30am-11am. Public health nurses are available for weigh-ins, to offer breastfeeding support, or just to answer any questions parents might have about their little ones, from birth to 12 months. All new parents are welcome to take advantage of this wonderful service!
All classes and services are booked directly through the provider offering them – visit our list of service providers for details.
