A mustard seed of hope: Culturally grounded approaches within wraparound care for pregnant and parenting women with substance use and trauma

Organization : Centre of Excellence for Women’s Health

Description : Since the 1990s, a number of community-based, wraparound programs for pregnant or parenting women who have substance use and other concerns have emerged in Canada. These ‘one-stop’, multi-service programs are a model of hope for health, wellness, and mother-child connection. The booklet was produced through the Co-Creating Evidence project (CCE) and is a Thank You to all the women who access these programs and the staff who care for them, supporting their healing journey. It describes the Indigenous cultural services provided by these programs, to honour this work and to inspire others who provide community-based programming in their work.
