Frequently Asked Questions About Breastfeeding Support

An IBCLC stands for International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. An IBCLC is a certified healthcare professional trained in the clinical management of breastfeeding. They have undergone intensive education, supervised clinical placements and must pass an exam to become Board Certified. They are not to be confused with a complementary professional who provides “breastfeeding support.” Even your OB or midwife cannot replace the education and experience of an IBCLC!

While our IBCLC’s are breastfeeding advocates, we are also completely non-judgmental and we offer support and guidance for each family to suit their individual needs. We will help establish comfortable and healthy breastfeeding practices, while educating you on how best to supplement with a bottle if that is your choice.

A blocked duct feels like a hard mass under the surface of your breast. They are often painful and, if left untreated, can progress to mastitis. Blocked ducts can occur for several reasons including a tongue tie, poor latch, or the inability of the baby to fully empty the breast. A Lactation Consultant can help address your concern and work with you and your baby to avoid blocked ducts in the future.

Yes! We are always available to help whether that is in your home, in hospital, in our centre, or virtually.

Complementary Services

At The WOMB Vaughan, we have an entire integrative health team that can work collaboratively to provide the best possible combination of care to you and your family. Here are a few services that work well in conjunction with Breastfeeding Support. Please contact us anytime to help you put together the best team for your needs!

Osteopathy / Manual Therapy

Osteopathy is a manual form of holistic therapy including cranio-sacral therapy that treats the entire individual including infants, children, adolescents, athletes, and adults. The focus of Osteopathy is to find the cause of the pathology or pain, and to treat all the systems and their connections in the body. Osteopathy restores normal structure and movement, and facilitates the body to return to a state of health.

Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care can transform the health of the whole family, ranging from newborn babies, to children to older adults. It is a manual therapy used to put the body into optimal alignment and restore nervous system function, while also reducing pain, increasing flexibility and range of motion, and reducing stress.

Naturopathy

Naturopathic Doctors provide integrative primary care and treat patients using herbs, supplements, dietary and lifestyle guidance, homeopathy, acupuncture, and vitamin injections. Their role is to educate you, guide you, and empower you to take control of your own health. They can see all members of the family and provide integrative primary care, including well-child checks!
