A certified lactation consultant provides education and practical support for breastfeeding to parents. PCN Nurses, based at Mountain Maternity and Family Medicine Clinic in Canmore, follow clients from early pregnancy until after the birth. Our Lactation Consultant works closely with Bow Valley Primary Care Network (PCN) nurses and local healthcare providers.
