Local Services & Resources
We can’t do it all! We all need help sometimes. The sooner we start asking for it and accepting it – as humbling and difficult as it may be – the more balanced our life as a parent will be. Here in HRM, we are lucky to have a vibrant community of people and services to help and guide you on your journey. Take a peek at some of my favourites!
