Vancouver Breastfeeding Centre
In-Person + Virtual Breastfeeding Clinic Specializing in Breastfeeding Medicine for those in BC


Dear Patients and Colleagues,

We regret to inform you that after 35 years of helping to promote, protect and support Breastfeeding families, Dr Livingstone is retiring, and the Vancouver Breastfeeding Centre will close permanently at the end of March 2022.

New consultations will be accepted until Mid-February 2022, and timely follow up care will be provided until the permanent closure by the end of March 2022. Until then, patients will continue to receive all necessary Breastfeeding Medicine assistance and then should return to their primary care provider for ongoing care.

It has been a privilege to help you and we are all saddened to be leaving.

Dr. Verity Livingstone can be contacted via
