Vancouver Native Health Society. The Phil Bouvier Centre recently welcomed our team, including camera and crew. New parents and their beautiful babies interacted with Dr. Andrew Macnab on and off camera. Footage from the film shoot will help other new parents recognize their all-important role, and what they can do to raise healthy and happy children. Sincere thanks to all the parents and babies who patiently participated.
