Mothers are needing support. Can you are someone you know benefit from this? Also check out the resources page of www.lactationcare.ca for addition mental health resources.

At least 14 percent of all new mothers report having postpartum depression in the first year after childbirth, but most do not talk about it or get help.

Please reach out for help because postpartum depression is treatable. When you feel better, your baby and your family will benefit too! 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦

Side-lying feeding is one of many things we can help you with at our clinic. It's such an amazing position to get rest AND feed your baby.
We accept drop-ins and now also appreciate people pre-booking a 30-minute time slot. Contact us to pre-book yours.

This is a great visual of how feedings can be described in the first days and weeks

Cereal and blueberries for the win!

In the hospital we encourage moms to breastfeed every 2-3 hours to nourish the baby and bring in a good future milk supply.

It’s math: 8-12 feeds in 24 hours (ideal) = nursing every 2-3 hours 📚📈

It’s a quick and easy way to get the message across that this baby needs to eat, and often.

Unfortunately, new parents seem think breastfeeding is going to be like the first picture (cereal)...all the feeds perfectly spaced out and all the same size. Every 2-3 hours. Easy. And the baby will sleep like an angel in between....

THIS IS NOT REALITY. In reality, your sweet newborn baby will have good feeds, short feeds, sleepy feeds, crappy feeds, and everything in between!

The visual of the blueberries is amazing because it shows how realistically feedings are at all different times and different lengths (bigger blueberries ☺️). And did you count the berries?!? More than enough!

Yes, we want you to nurse every 2-3 hours, but the baby calls the shots. Less watching the clock ⏰ and more watching for feeding cues 👶🏻 😃

This is so true
08/25/2020

This is so true

Just because your child has reached a certain age doesn't mean that all of a sudden they are supposed to be able to fall asleep without a cuddle or lying with you for a bit. This is being human. ♥️

Please phone ahead for the clinic to ensure there is space today (August 12). Currently 1 spot left.

Ah the magic of skin to skin - anytime!
