Breastfeeding and your baby
Not only can breastfeeding be a rewarding and nurturing experience, but it also offers many health benefits for your growing baby.
Breast milk is nutritionally complete, digested easily and provides a natural antibody to protect your baby against infections.
In addition, breastfeeding is more economical than formula feeding and helps promote optimal infant and child health, growth and development.
However, learning to nurse can take time, practice and patience. That’s why we have a variety of breastfeeding experts and services available to you and your family, including:
- Prenatal breastfeeding classes
- Prenatal assessment
- Breastfeeding consultations
- Back-to-work appointments
- Breast pumps, feeding supplies and breastfeeding aids
