Breastfeeding support

Community resources are a great way to get information during pregnancy and as new parents. We encourage you to use our community resources because you will be well informed and feel more connected to your community.  If you are looking for something specifically that is not see below please ask your midwife. This is by no means an exhaustive list nor specifically endorsed by our clinic.

Michael Garron Hospital Breastfeeding Clinic 416-469-6580, extension 6667 to book an appointment. Due to Covid-19 your first visit will be a virtual appointment with a Lactation Consultant. They will then book you an in-person visit after this based on need. Currently there is no drop-in option due to the requirement to socially distance and the cleaning requirements of Covid-19. 

As of Aug 17th, 2020 the clinic will be open 5 days a week being closed on Wednesday and Sunday.
