Mino M’shki-ki also runs the Canada Prenatal Nutrition Program (CPNP) which supports pregnancy planning, women who are pregnant and new moms and dads. The program offers cooking sessions as well as information about nutrition, breastfeeding and labour and delivery. It also includes home visits and explores birthing and parenting from an Indigenous perspective. The goals of the CPNP are to improve maternal infant health, increase the rates of healthy birth weights, and to promote and support breastfeeding. The program also aims to promote the creation of partnerships within communities, strengthen community capacity, and to increase support for vulnerable pregnant women and new mothers.
