A “Breastfeeding Buddy” is a caring, committed and trained volunteer who has breastfed. Buddies provide one-to-one and group support for breastfeeding moms and help connect them with community supports and resources. Learn about what ‘normal’ breastfeeding behaviour looks like and help deal with some common concerns that new (and/or) experienced nursing mothers may have. Bring your breastfeeding questions!

It can be hard to resolve these feelings while care for your new baby.
