Lactation Consultation and Infant Feeding Support


As a new parent, breast or chestfeeding can sometimes get off to a rocky start, we can help make it an enjoyable experience.

Sometimes for a variety of reasons infant feeding doesn’t turn out the way we had envisioned it during our pregnancies. Our International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC) are here to help you problem-solve the underlying causes of feeding difficulties you and your baby may be experiencing and help resolve them. As IBCLC’s we support all infant feeding methods (breast,chest, bottle, etc.) and can even help with the introduction of complementary solids and baby-led weaning at 6 months.

When to book an appointment with an IBCLC

Why choose an IBCLC?

International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC) are the only health care professionals educated in the understanding and treatment of COMPLEX breastfeeding issues. The IBCLC designation is the “gold-standard” accreditation for lactation professionals.

There are various pathways and backgrounds required to become an IBCLC. Anyone can call themselves a “Lactation Consultant” but, only someone who has taken the additional education program, done thousands of hours of one-on-one lactation support and written an international board certification exam from the International Board Of Lactation Consultant Examiners (IBLCE) can call themselves an IBCLC.

IBCLC’s must also recertify every 5 years in order to maintain competency in the field of human lactation and in order to continue to practice.

The IBCLC’s at the MomMe clinic are also regulated health professionals in the province of Ontario, for example being Registered Nurses (RN) as well.

Some lactation services may be OHIP covered with a completed referral from your midwife, family doctor or nurse practitioner. Click “Book Appointment” to find out more.
