Book an Appointment

At the Newman Breastfeeding Clinic (International Breastfeeding Centre) we understand the frustration of mothers who wish to breastfeed their babies and encounter problems. We have a team of world class experts led by Dr. Jack Newman who are devoted to helping mothers overcome numerous issues that otherwise might lead to stopping breastfeeding. Make an appointment below if:

  1. You would like to learn how to know your baby is getting enough milk from the breast.
  2. You feel your baby is not getting enough milk from the breast and you want to increase breastmilk intake by the baby.
  3. You have sore nipples and/or sore breasts/mastitis/abscess.
  4. Your baby is not latching on.
  5. Your baby is said to be allergic to something in your milk.
  6. Your baby has been diagnosed with reflux.
  7. Your baby is fussy or crying much of the time.
  8. You or your baby have a medical condition or you are taking medication that you have been told is inconsistent with continued breastfeeding. We can discuss your options to continue breastfeeding.
  9.  You have twins/multiples and need help with getting more milk to the babies, need help with positioning.
  10. You are breastfeeding babies of two different ages and you need help.
  11. You would like to learn about breastfeeding before your baby is born.
  12. You wish to induce lactation for an adopted baby or a baby carried by a surrogate.
  13. You have stopped breastfeeding and would like to start again.

 

At the Newman Breastfeeding Clinic you will be seen one-on-one in your own room. You will be seen by an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant and by the pediatrician on staff that day: Dr. Jack Newman, Dr. Aviva Lowe, Dr. Eitan Weinberg or Dr. Pooja Prabhu. Appointments are typically 60 – 90 minutes. In addition to bringing your baby with you, you are welcome to bring a partner or support person with you. We will be working with you and your baby (babies) directly teaching you what you can do overcome breastfeeding difficulties.

 

To make an appointment at the Newman Breastfeeding Clinic, please fill out the form below and provide your payment. Each appointment is $65 + HST ($73.45) to cover the fees of the lactation consultants which are not covered by OHIP.

 

We offer appointments on Monday – Thursday from 8:30 to 3:00.  If you are coming from outside Toronto, we will try to book you at 10:30 or 1:00 to avoid you travelling during rush hour, if possible.

 

The Newman Breastfeeding Clinic requires two separate referral forms: One for the breastfeeding parents, and one for the baby (or babies, in the case of multiples). Referrals from either a doctor or midwife or nurse practitioner are acceptable. Referrals must be received before we can provide you with an appointment date.

CANCELLATION POLICY

Once you have scheduled an appointment, you will be able to cancel or reschedule the appointment without penalty up to 48-hours before the appointment (not including Fridays, weekends and holidays). For appointments scheduled on a Monday, you will be able to cancel or reschedule until 4pm on the Thursday before.

If you cancel or reschedule your appointment less than 48-hours in advance, as outlined above, we are unable to provide a refund.

TONGUE-TIE AND LIP-TIES

Tongue-tie and lip-tie assessments are generally performed at each visit at the Newman Breastfeeding Clinic. We may recommend tongue and/or lip-tie release(s) as part of your care plan based on our physical exam of the area(s), our assessment of the latch, presenting breastfeeding challenges/symptoms, and the age of the baby, amongst other factors. A tongue and/or lip-tie release procedure may not necessarily be performed, even if that was the reason for which you and your baby were referred.

 

For a tongue or lip-tie release to be performed, your baby must have received a vitamin K shot either at birth or at least 24 hours before your appointment.
