Breastfeeding Education and Support

Community Health Nursing provides breastfeeding education to students, prenatal and postnatal clients. Community Health Nurses provide extensive breastfeeding support through home visits and telephone visits with clients. In some areas, Community Health Nurses offer breastfeeding support groups either at their work site or by linking with community groups such as Family Resource Centres.

Please contact the Community Health Nurse in your community for more information.
