Postpartum Drop-in Group
Our SCBP Registered Nurses and Breastfeeding Specialists Caroline Philippson (LC), Alison Rolfe, Philippa Lyons, Meagan Doumont, Yvonne Bone and Anita Kamoh are intimately involved in your care after your baby is born. They focus on helping you to establish breastfeeding and adjust to your new and exciting (and sometimes overwhelming) role as new parents.
Alison also runs a postpartum drop-in group every Wednesday afternoon. No sign-up is needed. A different topic is presented weekly by Alison and our scheduled guest speakers, but the group participants learn a lot form each other as well! Alison is committed to having relevant content, and strives to make a relaxing, fun and supportive environment. Come check it out!
Our drop-in workshops are by donation, to help us pay an honourarium to our guest speakers. A minimum $5 donation is suggested. Drop-ins may become closed if the room is overfull. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience.
