Northumberland County is offering more and more support for women who choose to breastfeed.
This fall, the HKPR District Health Unit is expanding the locations where it provides breastfeeding support services. There’s a new free breastfeeding support/clinic in Colborne being offered the first and third Tuesday of each month from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. at Colborne Public School at 8 Alfred Street. Family health nurses with the health unit will be available to answer questions about breastfeeding and provide support and reassurance.
The health unit also offers other free breastfeeding support/clinics:
In Brighton, on the first and third Tuesday of the month from 10 a.m. to noon at 170 Main Street.
In Campbellford, on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month from noon to 2 p.m. at the Ontario Early
Years Centre (Rotary Hall, 179 Saskatoon Ave.)
