Breastfeeding Clinics

Woman breastfeeding a baby
Public Health breastfeeding clinics are currently on hold due to the COVID-19 response. Please refer to the community supports listed below for more information regarding available breastfeeding support in the Wellington-Dufferin and Guelph area. 

 

With support and guidance, most women can successfully breastfeed their babies. If you’re looking for reassurance or help to make sure your baby is feeding well and getting enough milk, you’ve come to the right place. Our public health nurses are available by phone and in person – and our services are free!

You can buy manual breast pumps and some breastfeeding equipment through our breastfeeding clinics. You can rent hospital-grade electric pumps at several locations. For pricing and availability, call each location directly.

Public Health is one of many breastfeeding supports in the community. For more information about breastfeeding supports and how to rent a breast pump in your area, visit one of the following pages, or call Let’s Talk Parenting:
