Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding

Joseph Brant Hospital has received the IBCLCE (International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners) care award, which is internationally recognized. JBH supports and believes in breastfeeding and we also believe in supporting a family's informed choice for infant feeding. JBH is continuing to work on our Baby-Friendly initiatives, a designation supported by the World Health Organization and Unicef, and offers a breastfeeding clinic for families with newborns where we provide education and support.
