Breastfeeding Clinics

At breastfeeding clinics, a feeding assessment is provided by an IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant). There are two types of breastfeeding clinics in Halton:

  • Free public breastfeeding clinics

  • Private breastfeeding clinics

Public breastfeeding clinics

Most breastfeeding clinics require you to access the services at the hospital where you gave birth to your baby. If you had your baby outside of Halton and would like to go to a breastfeeding clinic, you usually need to return to the breastfeeding clinic at that hospital.

Private breastfeeding clinics

Private breastfeeding clinics are open to anyone and charge a fee for service. The fee at a clinic is generally less than having a private home visit with a lactation consultant.
