Breastfeeding offers many benefits to both mothers and babies.
Did you know that last year in Oxford County 85% of mothers chose to breastfeed?
Oxford County Public Health supports and encourages mothers in their effort to breastfeed. Mothers may receive support through a telephone call and a home visit.
All mothers are welcome to attend Well Baby Clinics for ongoing support and information.
Prenatal breastfeeding classes are held monthly. This two-hour class offers practical “how-to” information for those parents who want to learn about breastfeeding.
