Here at the Vancouver Breastfeeding Centre, we see patients referred to us for a variety of reasons. Most commonly these include:


  • Excessive weight loss or slow weight gain in baby
  • Poor Latch
  • Low milk supply
  • Mastitis
  • Plugged ducts
  • Painful Breasts & Nipples
  • Induced Lactation
  • Cleft lip or palate
  • Breast Reduction/Augmentation
  • Multiples
  • Prenatal Counseling
  • Tongue Tie
  • Weaning/Return to Work

Initial consultations generally take 45-60 mins. and are covered under the Medical Services Plan. One of our five physicians will take a careful history and observe as you breastfeed your baby. Most babies will be weighed before and after each feed in order to get a sense of how much milk your baby is transferring while at the breast. Our aim is to identify and address the cause of your breastfeeding difficulties.

Please Note: Our Clinic is referral based, meaning that you require a referral form your care provider where indicated.
