Families can receive breastfeeding support during an in-person consultation with a Public Health Nurse who has specialized breastfeeding education. Consultations are offered by appointment at the Belleville and Quinte West Public Health offices.
During consultations, breastfeeding will be assessed and an individualized breastfeeding plan developed. Consultations provide support when:
- Breastfeeding is not going as well as expected
- Nipples are sore
- Latching is not easy
- There are concerns about milk production or baby’s milk intake
