The Canadian Breastfeeding Foundation promotes breastfeeding and mother-infant health through donations to breastfeeding education programs and other initiatives.
About THE CANADIAN BREASTFEEDING FOUNDATION
One beneficiary of The Canadian Breastfeeding Foundation is the Goldfarb Breastfeeding Program of the Herzl Family Practice Centre in Montreal's Sir Mortimer B. Davis-Jewish General Hospital. The program supports Montreal's only public, free, hospital-based breastfeeding clinic. It offers clinical training for obstetrical fellows, medical students, nurses, and candidates for the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners (IBLCE) exam who intend to become International Board Certified Lactation Consultants. The program also supports a breastfeeding research group. The program receives no government funding and therefore relies on private donations.
