In Toronto, there is a tiny center that’s been in business for decades.
If you go on a pilgrimage to the “Maisonette d’hôte,” a private maternity ward, you’ll often meet up with people looking to “break bread.” The crux of the annual “Family Day” is the baby shower, which is also the site of a gala that raises funds for the cardiac intensive care unit at Toronto General Hospital (TGH).
And this year, the gala was also held to raise money for the COVID-19 program, which is keeping babies safe from co-sleeping with adults. After the birth of his child, my husband asked my friend about COVID-19, a program meant to improve safety among young kids by vaccinating their parents on a family basis.

Though the U.S. has been aggressively trying to keep children healthy in order to avoid infectious diseases, many say that the Canadian government’s programs are still weak, and without vaccinations, death can come as a result.
