Monday, May 7
Guest: Janette Festival, NorthernStar Mothers Milk Bank
Topic: If you give birth to a premature or ill baby and are not able to breastfeed, the Canadian Paedeatric Society states that pasteurized donor human milk is the next best option. Six years ago, this was not an option for most of Canada, but now Calgary has a milk bank and caregivers are now able to access milk for their child! Tune in for full details on this amazing organization and how you can access their services or become a donor. 

Monday, May 14
Guest:
Steacy Collyer, Calgary Reads
Topic:
The Children’s Reading Place is about spreading the joy of reading throughout Calgary. It’s based on the simple idea that if you create a comfortable, fun space for children to read, they will! Calgary Reads transformed a heritage house in Inglewood into a welcoming hub of reading where school groups and families can come to experience the pleasure of curling up with a good book. Tune in for full details on this free literacy program for your family of bookworms!
