Activities and services

List of basic activities offered by the Nourri-Source network to support breastfeeding. Every sector (group) organises activities to promote breastfeeding and offers services that are adapted to the reality and the specific needs of their region within the availabilities of the volunteer breastfeeding support mothers.

 

Obtain a breastfeeding support mother (over-the-phone assistance)

To obtain over-the-phone personalized assistance, the mother will be paired with a breastfeeding support mother prior to, or following the birth of her baby.  As soon as the pairing begins, parents receive support, encouragement, information and technical advice in regards to breastfeeding. 
To be paired with a breastfeeding support mother in the regions of Saguenay/Lac St-Jean, Lanaudière, the Laurentians, Laval, the Montérégie, Montreal, Central Quebec (Centre du Québec) (Bécancour) or the Eastern Townships (Val St-François, Memphrémagog, Coaticook and Sherbrooke) : contact us immediately!

 

Breastfeeding halts

These are moments to take a break, a meeting place for parents living a breastfeeding experience or those expecting a child.  These meetings allow exchanges between parents and the possibility to meet with breastfeeding support mothers and sometimes a health professional.  Verify the dates of the meetings with your CLSC, your health establishment or visit the site of your regional or your non-regionalised sector.

 

Prenatal information sessions

Information sessions on breastfeeding are organised periodically and are addressed to expecting parentsThe meetings are adapted to the needs of the community the group serves.  For more information, contact-us.

 

Other services

Certain Nourri-Source groups offer other support activities, information or training.  Others rent and sell breastfeeding supplies or other items for their internal financing.  For more information contact-us.
