Fitzroy Maternity

Breastfeeding clinic

Breast feeding clinic

Our specialised breast feeding consultants will help you establish breast feeding successfully and assist you with any problems after you go home.

Breast feeding support from a breast feeding specialist

We encourage all new mothers to breast feed and all our staff are trained to assist you. A breast feeding specialist is available if required during your hospital stay to offer professional assistance on your care and the baby’s feeding technique.

Free breast feeding classes are held 4 to 5 days a week. The class schedule is available in your room.

We encourage breast feeding in line with World Health Organisation guidelines, while supporting women who choose to bottle-feed.

After your stay

You can return to the breast feeding clinic until your baby is 12 months of age, or phone for advice from a qualified breastfeeding consultant. There is no cost to you to use the breastfeeding clinic. For more information telephone: (03) 9411 7634.
