MVP is a program for mothers, newborns and their families. It provides support and care at home following the birth of a baby. The program is delivered by Public Health Nurses from the Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region (RQHR). A Public Health Nurse from the MVP will check on both you and your baby, provide health information, answer questions, give you support and help you and your family adjust to parenthood.

All mothers are automatically referred to the program. Once you have left the hospital, a Public Health Nurse from the MVP will contact you to arrange a home visit. The home visit is usually made within 24 hours of hospital discharge. The MVP is available FREE OF CHARGE to both rural and city clients within the RQHR.
