Mom and Baby
Indigenous Early Years


Sheway provides comprehensive health and social services to women who are pregnant and/or parenting young children and who are experiencing current or previous issues with substance use.

The program consists of prenatal, postnatal, and primary care, as well as education, counselling, addictions management, housing, and other parenting support. Sheway also assists in fulfilling basic needs, such as providing daily nutritious lunches, food coupons, food bags, nutritional supplements, formula, and clothing.

Sheway’s program model is based on the recognition that the health of women and their children is linked to the conditions of their lives and their ability to influence these conditions. Services are provided in response to the needs of pregnant and parenting women.
