New Resource--The OMama Project

The OMama Project is a new maternal and child eHealth project in Ontario. It aims to improve maternal-newborn care by providing resources to support the best beginnings of lifelong health. Started in 2014, and launched in June 2016, OMama is a 2-year maternal-newborn care pilot project led by the Better Outcomes Registry & Network (BORN), a provincial program of the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, with support from eHealth Ontario.  

Under the direction of an Advisory Committee made up of experts in medicine (obstetrics and family medicine), midwifery, nursing, e-health, technology, health promotion, social work and health policy, OMama is launching a website and mobile app offering trusted, easy-to-understand health information on over 100 topics related to pregnancy, birth and early parenting for women and families, when and where they need it.
