The North Lambton CHC has hospital grade breast pumps available for lending for personal use to help you establish breastfeeding. The use of a breast pump is free; however, a breast pumping kit is available to purchase and yours to keep. The use of the North Lambton CHC hospital-grade breast pump is for temporary support at the discretion of North Lambton CHC staff to ensure we can assist as many breastfeeding families as possible. This will ensure fairness to support families with the youngest infants.
To request a breast pump, please complete the online Form and a staff member will connect with you as soon as possible to provide breast pump lending details. Click Here
