Lactation Services


Although babies are born with the reflexes and instinct to breastfeed, you may have questions about breastfeeding/chestfeeding or require some assistance along the way.

Many individuals need help with breastfeeding. You can get help from your health care provider, breastfeeding/chestfeeding support services like clinics and from peer support groups. 24 Hour telephone breastfeeding support is available from Telehealth (1-866-797-0000 or TTY 1-866-797-0007). Keep looking for the support you need!

TBDHU Lactation Services can help. Public health nurses with specialized training offer pregnant or breastfeeding/chestfeeding people with babies of any age breastfeeding education and support.

Lactation services are available with a public health nurse who has advanced lactation training. Appointments are offered onsite, in your home, virtually or by phone. For more information, call TBDHU Lactation Services (807) 625-8827 or Toll-free 1-888-294-6630 or contact us by email at:
