Lambton Public Health is continuing to expand its ‘Ask a Public Health Nurse’ drop-in offerings throughout the county, with the re-opening of the health unit’s main office as a drop-in site, giving parents and caregivers a chance to connect with a public health nurse.

The ‘Ask a Public Health Nurse’ drop-in program is available at the Point Edward office as well as eight EarlyON locations across Lambton, and is open to parents and caregivers with children ranging from birth to school-age.

Public health nurses are available to answer questions regarding breastfeeding supports and infant nutrition, newborn care, parenting, and growth and development.

“Ask a Public Health Nurse gives parents and caregivers the chance to ask important questions about their child’s growth and development, but it also offers important opportunities for socialization that can have long term benefits for both parents and child,” said Jen Beaubien, clinical and family services supervisor. “We’re thrilled to be able to resume offering the drop-in program throughout the county, giving parents a chance to access important services in their communities.”
