Lactation Consultant And Breastfeeding Support

“Breastfeeding is an instinctual and natural act,
but it is also an art that is learned day by day.
It is almost always simply a matter of practical knowledge
and not a question of good luck.”
– La Leche League

The New Mummy Company has IBCLC Qualified Lactation Consultants extensively covering Toronto and south east Ontario including Hamilton, Halton, Peel, York and Durham regions. Our Lactation Consultants are able to visit your home in order to provide you with the one-on-one hands on advice and reassurance required.

Our advice when encountering breastfeeding issues would be to contact a Lactation Consultant sooner rather than later. The earlier an issue such as a poor latch, lack of milk supply or any pumping concerns can be identified the easier it will be for an expert to resolve.

We offer Prenatal Breastfeeding Education Classes to help you get off to the best possible breastfeeding start possible once your baby is born. We can educate you and provide you with the reassurance and confidence to successfully breastfeed while also being able to proactively resolve any potential troubles yourself.

Lactation Consultancy Support is available for any breastfeeding issue you may experience once your baby is born. Home visits are the norm with this service though support and advice can also be sought over the phone and even via Skype. Our experienced, trained and accredited Lactation Consultants will be able to address all of your concerns and leave you with a breastfeeding plan which fits your schedule and lifestyle.

Should you require breastfeeding support, from one of our international board certified lactation consultants please call or email us and we will arrange a home visit for you as soon as possible.

Q&A

What is the IBCLC?

An International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) acquires extensive clinical experience for certification, has passed a board exam, and must re-certify every five years.  As the term “lactation consultant” is not protected, anyone can use that term to describe herself.  Only with the IBCLC credential are you assured a certain level of education and experience.  To verify that your lactation consultant is an IBCLC, you can search this  directory.

Can I claim these expenses through insurance?

We will provide you with a receipt for the consultation however you will have to check with your healthcare provider to determine whether a Lactation Consultant is a claimable expense under your plan
