International Breastfeeding Centre

We are a non-profit organization in Toronto, ON, Canada, providing clinical breastfeeding support and resources for thousands of families each year. Our mission is to empower mothers to achieve their own breastfeeding goals. Our clinical team of International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLCs) and pediatricians gives one-on-one counselling to mothers and infants experiencing breastfeeding difficulties. Fees for lactation consultants are not covered by medicare in Canada. Our clinic receives no government funding. We depend on donations in order to to provide the highest quality tertiary care and lactation support for families who cannot afford this one-of-a-kind service.

On Nov. 28, 2017 help us help more babies get the best start in life. We are dedicating our #GivingTuesdayCA to families with low birth weight infants who could really use our help! There are, on average, 1750 babies born at a low birth weight in Toronto each year.  Please remember @IBCToronto on #GivingTuesdayCA Nov. 28, 2017, your donations will bring joy and hope to as many as 960 families with low birth weight infants who we will help this year.

  Our goal is to raise $5200.00 to help 80 low birth weight babies and their families with breastfeeding. That is, help for four babies a day for one month of clinic days.

Your $65.00 donation will provide a low birth weight infant and her or his family with 1.5 hours of dedicated breastfeeding help and support as well as a lactation aid kit if needed to continue to support breastfeeding and increase the mother’s milk supply. 

Our hope is to spend $260.00 a day to help four low birth weight babies each day our clinic is open which means helping as many as 960 families this year!  If we exceed our $5200.00 goal we could help even more families and babies! Help us get there!
