Community Programs

   

To maintain our Vision, the MVFHT strives to offer comprehensive programs and specialty services. However, we acknowledge services in our wider community that serve patients in a variety of other ways.

 


Breastfeeding Clinics with Lactation Consultants

 

Lactation consultant appointments are available at MVFHT every Fridays from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Clinics are staffed by Public Health Nurses / Lactation Consultants. Information about normal growth and development, breastfeeding counselling and hands-on assistance for latch are provided. Referrals from healthcare providers are always accepted. Prenatal counselling about breastfeeding is also available.
