Breastfeeding Support

Our breastfeeding support service is a free service, available for families living in the Mornington Peninsula Shire. Our Maternal & Child Health nurses in this program are experienced lactation consultants who can provide information and support with breastfeeding challenges.

Breastfeeding support is offered at 2 locations across the Shire:

  • Tootgarook
  • Mornington


To book in for a breastfeeding consultation, either speak to your MCH nurse or contact our Child & Family Health team on 5950 1099
