The Breast Start program is designed to ensure timely completion of prenatal monitoring throughout the course of pregnancy. We also promote and support patients to make healthy maternal lifestyle choices through the provision of information and supportive lifestyle counseling. Our Registered Nurse ensures support for identified maternal health concerns by promoting access of the Atikokan Family Health Team and/or making referrals to community resources where necessary. Hospital grade electric breast pumps are available to rent as well.
If you are pregnant, or recently had a baby and have questions or concerns, please call the Atikokan Family Health Team at 597-8781 to speak to a Registered Nurse.
