Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding offers many benefits to both mothers and babies. Did you know that last year in Oxford County 85% of mothers chose to breastfeed?

Public Health offers an in-class breastfeeding class once a month at the Public Health office in Woodstock. The class runs from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. and helps you understand the benefits of breastfeeding and how your partner or friend/family support person can help you through the early days of breastfeeding and beyond.

In the class you will learn about:

  • Health benefits of breastfeeding your baby (for you and your baby)
  • Importance of skin-to-skin contact with baby
  • Various positions for breastfeeding and a proper latch
  • Where you can get help in Oxford County

Ongoing support for breastfeeding

New parents can drop into a Ask a Nurse Clinic for breastfeeding support.
