Breast feeding classes

During your stay

Breast feeding support is available around the clock from our midwives and internationally certified lactation specialists.

We encourage all new mothers to breastfeed and all our midwifery staff are trained to assist you. Lactation consultants are also available during your hospital stay to offer one-on-one guidance should you need it.

Breastfeeding classes are also offered during your stay in the Patient Lounge. Please refer to the updated class schedule in your room.

After your stay

Many new mothers appreciate knowing that ongoing support with breast feeding is available after they leave hospital.

Mater Maternity is pleased to offer a Feeding Support Clinic for new mothers after they return home. These individual sessions with a certified lactation consultant provide one-on-one assistance to support new mothers and overcome challenges with breastfeeding.
