About the Pregnancy and Babies Resource Centre

This resource centre has been organized to follow the natural course of pregnancy and baby development, from preconception through the first year of life. The material in this resource centre has been written in collaboration with obstetricians, paediatricians, nurse practitioners, lactation consultants, dietitians, and psychologists, affiliated with The Hospital for Sick Children.
