Breastfeeding Support Programs

Maternity Centre Lactation Consultant

The lactation consultant at the Maternity Centre is available to assist pregnant women and women up to 8 weeks post-partum with education and assistance with breastfeeding. Women can arrange an appointment during pregnancy with the lactation consultant to become better prepared for breastfeeding, while postpartum women can receive assistance with concerns, or even support if breastfeeding is going well.

Some of the common reasons for referral to the lactation consultant include:

  • Education about breastfeeding
  • Difficulty with latch
  • Sore nipples
  • Not enough milk
  • Oversupply
  • Poor weight gain
  • Wanting to know how to use equipment
  • Questions about breastfeeding
  • Mastitis
  • Thrush
  • Plugged ducts
  • Breastfeeding support
