A volunteer may not be available to answer (we all have little ones!), but will respond as soon as possible - within 24 hours.
Join our Facebook Peer Support Group
Moms, Boobs and Babies offers a Facebook support group for mom-to-mom breastfeeding support. Vous pouvez aussi écrire des postes en français!
It is a closed group – new members must request approval to join and new members are carefully screened.
We also have a public Facebook page where we post updates about events and initiatives.
Who else is available for support outside of Yellowknife?
Your local health centre or healthy family program, public health nurses, community health representatives, and other experienced moms are all great places to ask for breastfeeding support! You can also call (867) 920-6570 and ask to speak to a breastfeeding clinic nurse during business hours if you need additional support.
For peer support you can call our toll-free peer support line anytime or ask other moms questions on our Facebook group.
We are hoping to put together a support listing for each NWT community. Please let us know if you can help!
Monthly Breastfeeding Support Meetings
*Temporarily postponed due to COVID*
Breastfeeding Support Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of every month from 4PM – 6PM in Centre Square Mall Lower Level. Additional meetings may be added now that we have our new space - see our schedule
Meetings are followed by a healthy snack. Pregnant women, siblings, dads, grandparents and other support persons are all welcome and encouraged to attend. Taxi vouchers are available upon request as well.
Si vous voulez vous exprimer en français, nous avons souvent des bénévoles bilingues qui peuvent traduire ou te répondre en français!
Moms, Boobs and Babies volunteers help facilitate postnatal classes with Yellowknife Public Health. Postnatal classes are offered free of charge for parents and babies under 1 every Monday afternoon from 1:30pm – 3:00pm at the Baker Center in Yellowknife from September – June.
