Helping you reach your breastfeeding goals.

Breastfeeding helps build the bond between mother and baby while also providing baby with the best nutrition possible. We know that breastfeeding can come with its struggles and that you may require a helping hand along the way. That help comes from a Board Certified Lactation Consultant.  The New Mummy Company Team is comprised of experienced and qualified Lactation Consultants ready to make your breastfeeding journey as comfortable and successful as possible.

Lactation Consultant And Breastfeeding Support

“Breastfeeding is Natural. It’s not always natural like breathing (which is automatic) but rather like walking (which needs to be learned) and learning is easier with support.
– La Leche League

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, low milk supply, slow weight gain or any pumping concerns can be identified the easier it will be for our experts to resolve and improve your breastfeeding experience.

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 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 via Skype for clients out with of our serviced locations or internationally. 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 IBCLC 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?

All of our Lactation Consultants are IBCLC certified. 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

Which locations do you cover?

We have a team of Lactation consultants who will cover Toronto & the wider GTA. We also have a Lactation consultant based in Burnaby, Vancouver who will travel within the metro Vancouver areas. Call us today to learn more
