Sobey’s has a program called Baby Be Healthy – apply for it as soon as you find out you’re pregnant. You have to visit your local sobey’s pharmacy to apply, and it’s from pregnancy until your baby is 1 year old. They will supply you with prenatal vitamins free of charge once a month, and also all kinds of helpful information via email.
It’s a great program, make sure to let pregnant friends know about it. There’s no info on their site about it, I had to email them, so probably best to just go in person and speak to the pharmacist.
Are there any locations in the city that have a pharmacy?
I think they all have a pharmacy. I know the one on ste annes does for sure.
Sobeys on Reenders does not have a pharmacy. Check out their website for list of stores with pharmacies (http://www.sobeys.com/en/In-My-Store/pharmacy/baby-be-healthy.aspx)
Check out their Facebook page for a few more details… sounds like the kits vary from store to store, and program is for people with 0-2 year olds.
Sobeys Hi Lauren, we do not have a standard welcome kit. It varies from store to store and varies over time. The kit may include product samples, coupons and baby related health information, as well as a Baby Be healthy tote bag, while quantities last. Please contact your local pharmacy for more information.
The vitamins is the only guarantee I guess….still worth it at 10-20$ a month for vitamins! 🙂
