In hospital we do our best to support early breastfeeding within the first hour after birth. The nurses will support you with breastfeeding in the delivery and postpartum units and if you are encountering any difficulties, we have lactation consultants in hospital to support.
Dr. Chapman provides full breastfeeding support after discharge through her clinic called Well Fed, and more information can be found at www.wellfedclinic.com.
Drs. Hicks, Labrie, and Torriero provide breastfeeding support through their Airdrie clinic location, called Nest Maternity, and can be found at www.nestmaternity.ca.
Because breastfeeding support requires longer appointments and specialized rooms/equipment to provide comprehensive care, we are unable to accommodate breastfeeding appointments at the Maternity Care clinic.
