Baby Bed Project Kicks Off

By March 23, 2017June 8th, 2021No Comments

The Baby Bed Program is an initiative that Island Health has recently engaged in to help new mothers and specifically to reduce infant mortality rates. The Auxiliary has provided $20,000 funding to assist in getting this worthwhile program started in the Nanaimo area.

The program which started in Finland in the 1930’s has contributed to one of the world’s lowest infant mortality rates. Now the program is spreading across Canada and Island Health is one of the early adopters.
