Baby Box Program

The Bancroft Pregnancy Care Centre is a proud registered distributor of The Baby Box. Baby Box Co. brings a 75 year old Baby Box tradition from Finland to expectant parents around the world. Baby Box Co. provides products to pregnant women plus a cozy and safe place for your baby to sleep for the first six months, or until he/she can roll over, pull up on the sides, or exceeds the weight maximum of 52 pounds. Baby Boxes have been tested by Health Canada as an approved sleep environment for a newborn, and come with a mattress, fitted sheet, and waterproof cover. The Baby Box Co. also includes sleep tips and resources for new parents, and memberships to their online educational portal, Baby Box University.

All parents are eligible to receive a Baby Box but must show a Baby Box University certificate of completion in order to receive a Baby Box. This certificate confirms that the safe sleep and general parenting syllabus for Ontario has been completed and that the mother has passed a comprehension test.
