WE ARE BOOKING IN-PERSON APPOINTMENTS. IF YOU PREFER A VIRTUAL APPOINTMENT PLEASE SELECT THIS OPTION. THANK YOU
As of May 3, 2021, virtual visits will be subsidized by the International Breastfeeding Centre and provided to you at no cost. You must have a referral for both you and your infant(s), as well as a valid Ontario Health Card/OHIP number for both you and the infant(s), in order to book a no-cost visit. We are offering this virtual care option to patients due the evolving COVID-19 pandemic and the difficulties faced by families due to the recent Ontario stay-at-home order.
The Newman Breastfeeding Clinic requires a referral form for the breastfeeding parent and/or each breastfeeding parent- if you will be co-breastfeeding. Referrals from either a doctor or midwife or nurse practitioner are acceptable. Prenatal appointments can be made for any breastfeeding concern including induced lactation for adoption, surrogacy or co-breastfeeding, starting breastfeeding out right, previous breast surgery and so forth. We are happy to help support you to breastfeed. Please print and have your health care provider complete the referral form and email attached to firstname.lastname@example.org, upload form in the appointment request below or have your health care provider fax referral to 416-498-0012. https://ibconline.ca/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/Referral-Form-Mother.pdf
If you have any issues getting referrals from your doctor or midwife, please reach out to this online walk in clinic. They have a specific request for lactation referrals – https://www.mdconnected.ca/book-a-visit/public/consultation-type
