Breastfeeding Services and Postpartum Care

Good advice for breastfeeding is a good start for life

OUR BREASTFEEDING COUNSELOR ROLE

Our breastfeeding counselor will give you a complete assessment before, after delivery, and during breastfeeding
1 FOR THE WOMEN
  • Review the history of pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding by exploring all their complications, difficulties, and interventions
  • Assess concerns and perceptions about breastfeeding
  • Assess your knowledge of the baby’s care and needs
  • Assess your knowledge of the baby’s discomfort and constant crying
  • Evaluate knowledge and difficulties in monitoring baby’s follow-up care (baby’s weight, height, and diet)
  • Examine the breasts for wounds, redness, or pain
  • Take charge of the various problems related to pain during breastfeeding (cracks, mycosis, engorgement, mastitis, etc…)
2 FOR THE BABY
  • Evaluate how the baby latches on to detect difficulties
  • Examine the baby anatomically
After the evaluation, our breastfeeding counselor will establish a care plan taking into account your goals, your choices, and your needs. She can also call on other professionals in the company such as the respiratory therapist (if the nose is easily congested in the baby) and the physiotherapist (if perineal and pelvic rehabilitation is necessary).
