The Collingwood Well Baby Clinic is on the move

Effective Monday, November 6, 2023, the Collingwood Well Baby Clinic (CWBC), run in partnership with the Collingwood General and Marine Hospital (CGMH), is moving to a new location. The CWBC will be housed in a larger space adjacent to Midwives Nottawasaga at Lakeview Place, 9811 Beachwood Road, Collingwood.

"This is an exciting time for the clinic, which recently celebrated its five-year anniversary. With this continued success and new space, we are looking to further expand our roster of programs and services in the near future," says Natalie Kirby, midwife and CWBC Lead.

Daily drop-in hours for concerns relating to baby's weight gain, breastfeeding, pregnancy loss, and mood related concerns for new parents will continue to be offered.

The clinic will continue to provide service to the community 365 days per year to support a wide variety of services, inclusive of:

  • Well baby care for patients without family doctors until 6 weeks post-partum
  • Breastfeeding support with lactation consultants
  • Routine well baby weight checks
  • Antenatal breastfeeding consults
  • Weekly After Baby Group for families struggling with mood changes post-partum
  • Bi-monthly Prenatal Breastfeeding Workshop
  • Weekly postpartum walking group
  • Indoor postpartum group

"Having this service available in the community is an excellent opportunity for new moms and parents to quickly and easily access supports in those first hours, days and weeks following delivery, in a safe and welcoming environment," says Rosemary Frketich, VP Patient Services and CNE.

A full list of programs and services can be found on the Collingwood Well Baby Clinic website.
