BREASTFEEDING & NEWBORN
CLINIC

ABOUT THE CLINIC

The Breastfeeding and Newborn Clinic is dedicated to helping you with your postpartum journey. We provide assessment and treatment plans on infant feeding, neonatal jaundice and well-mom and baby care.

We offer a group prenatal breastfeeding class via Zoom to help get feeding off to a great start. To register for the program, click HERE. Our Board-Certified Lactation Consultant and Registered Midwife is available for both prenatal and postpartum individual appointments to discuss any specific concerns that you may have.

Some things that may be reviewed with the Lactation Consultant include:

  • Latching difficulties

  • Low milk supply and possible need for medication treatment

  • Engorgement or overactive milk supply

  • Breast or nipple pain

  • Suspected infection or mastitis

  • Inducing lactation (adoption, surrogacy, non-childbearing female partner)

  • Poor and/or slow weight gain in breastfed infant

  • Breastfeeding multiples or tandem nursing

  • Breast pump education and/or trouble shooting

In addition, our midwives can offer assessment and management of newborn jaundice, including blood work and admission to hospital for phototherapy, if necessary. Our team can also make referrals to the paediatricians at Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital as needed.
