SUPPORT Breastfeeding

Our clinical support helps mothers overcome obstacles so they can breastfeed even when struggling with difficulties. The International Breastfeeding Centre is here to support, encourage and provide help to mothers who would otherwise be disappointed and quit breastfeeding. At our Clinic, we see and help mothers and infants with a wide range of breastfeeding challenges and we help them achieve their breastfeeding goals.
In addition to our breastfeeding clinic we train lactation residents, midwives, nurses, physicians and provide opportunities for observers to learn from our staff.  We offer a free email answering service to mothers and professionals, maintain this website as a source of reliable breastfeeding information, create videos to give examples of the practical knowledge necessary to provide expert help to mothers, educate the public about the importance of breastfeeding and provide visual examples of solutions to common breastfeeding challenges.

You can make a difference in the lives of mothers and infants by donating to support our services. Charitable tax receipts are given for donations which can be made via Canada Helps and the Canadian Breastfeeding Foundation at canadianbreastfeedingfoundation.org.  Please direct your donation (Fund/Designation) to ibc – The International Breastfeeding Centre.
