The institution’s policy on breastfeeding is to create conditions conducive to the promotion and protection of breastfeeding, while supporting families regardless of how they choose to feed their newborns.

The CISSS de la Montérégie-Centre is a “Baby Friendly” institution in accordance with the criteria set by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Recognized worldwide, the “Baby Friendly” certification aims to create care settings where breastfeeding is the norm. Its purpose is to ensure that each child has the best possible start in life. Certification is the result of implementing best practices, part of which is complying with the International Code of Marketing of Breast-Milk Substitutes.

For full details about the “Baby Friendly” program and the conditions that accredited institutions must meet, visit the Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux’s website.



  • Prenatal classes: Inform future parents about breastfeeding to help them make an informed decision about how to feed their newborn and teach them the best techniques for making breastfeeding a pleasant experience.
  • Prenatal practical workshop: Familiarize future parents with breastfeeding positions and review the basic concepts of breastfeeding before baby’s arrival.
  • Postpartum home visit: Breastfeeding support provided by a specialized prenatal nurse a few days after you return home from the hospital.
  • Pairing with a breastfeeding support mom: Community organizations match interested couples with a breastfeeding support mom.
