A breastfeeding companion – ABC program

Get mom-to-mom telephone support.

Pregnant or Breastfeeding? The ABC program matches you with a trained breastfeeding support mom who also has breastfeeding experience. Through telephone support, these volunteers can guide you along in your breastfeeding journey and provide encouragement, information, practical suggestions, empathy, and understanding, in a caring, non-judgmental way.

Breastfeeding clinic

At our breastfeeding clinic, you will receive one-on-one support from a certified breastfeeding consultant or specially trained nurse. Consultants will lead you through common breastfeeding challenges and help you reach your breastfeeding goals.
