A Baby Guide to Calgary

When you are a new parent it’s overwhelming to try to find everything you need to know about having a baby and how to make the most of your parental leave in this fine city. Thanks to two local moms, Babyvibe has come across the must have accessory for any new parent in Calgary.

What it is

Written by Paula McGarrigle and Elena Rhodes, A Baby Guide to Calgary: Making the Most of Your Parental Leave (, is a guide to resources and activities that are targeted for new parents and babies under 13 months in Calgary.

Why we can’t put it down

The book is a practical, easy to read guide that really offers all you need to now about having a baby in Calgary. Paula and Elena do a fantastic job helping you out with the craziness that ensues after having a baby. That includes the paperwork you have to deal with, what help is available for new parents, and other issues that arise in the first six weeks after the birth of your baby. In addition, they help you make the most of your maternity/parental leave by highlighting great activities, classes, parks, and more that this city has to offer.

And the help doesn’t stop there. The duo have also been able to present in their book travel and babyproofing tips, information on postnatal fitness, shopping for baby, parenting courses that are available, and so much more.

As a newcomer to Calgary with a newborn, this Babyvibe mom found the book to be a valuable tool to ensure that I have properly handled the administrative component of childbirth, and to help me get off the couch and explore the city.

Sit back, relax and read – all you need to know is under one cover. This comprehensive and well-researched book is definitely worth checking out.
