Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding is the normal way to feed a baby. It provides benefits to babies, mothers, communities and the environment.

Public Health offers an in-class breastfeeding class once a month at the Public Health office in Woodstock. The class runs from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. and gives you the basics of breastfeeding and how your partner or friend/family support person can help you through the early days of breastfeeding and beyond.

In the class you will learn about:

  • Breastfeeding positions
  • Latching
  • How to tell if breastfeeding is going well in the first weeks
  • Where you can get help in Oxford County

Ongoing support for breastfeeding

New parents can call the Health Unit to get breastfeeding support by telephone, home visit or clinic appointment.
