Matched And Latched

Kids West Family Resource Centre has developed a new mom to mom support group for breastfeeding mothers and an online support group with special funding from IWK supporting the beginning of the project in 2015.

We often hear stories for West Prince mothers “If I had more support I may have continued breastfeeding”

This project was created to support mothers to continue a successful breastfeeding experience.

We will match you with another mom (peer helper) to be a support by calls, texts, emails, and hospital visits.

If you are an expectant mother interested in breastfeeding your child, please contact our prenatal coordinator Jane Bulger 902-853-4066.
