Thank you very much, Mr. Speaker. There was still three minutes left, guys. I'll be really, really quick.

I have a couple more questions. My questions are still for the Minister of Health and Social Services. And I'd like to know if parents are coming back potentially after having delivered in Edmonton and having to isolate when they get home, how does the Department of Health and Social Services, namely public health, intend to do well-baby visits and how do they intend to further support new moms. Thank you.

Yes, thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, I'm not aware that there will be any changes to those services. They're not delivered by obstetrics nurses. They're delivered by public health. And so when people return with their newborns, they'll get the same services that they would have if they had delivered here. Thank you.

Sorry, Mr. Speaker. I must be very confused because my question is in regards to if somebody's coming home, they're having to isolate, then they can't have anybody in their home from public health. So I know it has nothing to do with obstetrics. But I'm just wondering, as far as somebody being on isolation with a newborn, how is public health able to provide support to that parent. Thank you.

Thank you very much, Mr. Speaker. I think that's an important one that we follow up on so that if a parent does have an issue that they need assistance with, how the department will be able to support that parent. I know that those first two weeks are an important time for postpartum depression, lactation consultants. There's mental health supports. There's a lot of reasons that a parent would need support in those first two weeks. If someone has had a C-section, quite often you have staples removed. There's multiple different reasons. And so I'm just making sure that parents have solutions once they're home.

My last question -- and I promise to move on in your agenda, thank you, Mr. Speaker -- is I'm wondering if Health and Social Services would be willing to provide birth worker grants even through child and family services so that people who feel that they need consistent care between the Northwest Territories and Alberta have access to dollars to be able to hire a birth worker. Thank you.

Yes, thank you. I'm sorry, I don't have a good answer to this either. I think that we don't cover birth work here. So we wouldn't be covering it in other jurisdictions as well. But I'll certainly get back to the Member about that. Thank you.
