Breastfeeding Matters


Welcome to Breastfeeding Matters -- South Vancouver Island!

We are a Canadian registered charity dedicated to protecting, promoting and supporting breastfeeding in the South Vancouver Island area.

Our group members are breastfeeding advocates from the Greater Victoria area including physicians, public health nurses, doulas, breastfeeding counsellors, lactation consultants, nutritionists, La Leche League Leaders, childbirth educators and breastfeeding mothers.

Unfortunately, we've had to cancel the May 9th conference because of insufficient registration numbers. All those who registered will receive a full refund. We're planning to set a new conference date for the fall, and we'd like your input. Please take our quick survey to help us bring you the best possible conference!

The 2014 Quintessence Breastfeeding Challenge was held on Saturday, October 4 at Mayfair Mall Centre Court.

73 Moms nursed 74 happy babies! Thank you Mayfair Centre for hosting, and VIHA for organizing!
