Prenatal breastfeeding workshop

Virtual meetings to get ready for breastfeeding

This online breastfeeding class and workshop were designed to empower parents with basic knowledge and skills to build confidence in the first days and weeks of breastfeeding.

During the 2 hour-long workshops, the main concerns of participants regarding breastfeeding will be addressed :

  • The 4th trimester and the normal behavior of a newborn baby ;
  • Milk production and ways to maximize it ;
  • The basic principles of positioning and latching ;
  • The clues that baby is drinking enough ;
  • Where to get help.

Online videos and visuals will be used - a ball and a doll or stuffed animal may be helpful as props.


The meetings take place on the Zoom platform.

Offered by Nourri-Source Montérégie and Nourri-Source Montréal 

As places are limited, they are reserved for families residing on the island of Montreal.

We suggest attending the workshop 1 to 2 months before your expected due date. We encourage you to participate as a couple or with a significant other who can support you during breastfeeding.

Research project

Are you a First-Time Expecting Parent? 

Hello! The team Once Upon a Night, in the sleep research laboratory at the Hôpital en santé mentale Rivière-des-Prairies and McGill University (under the supervision of Marie-Hélène Pennestri, PhD, psychologist), is in the process of recruiting first-time expecting parents!

We are looking for mothers who have been pregnant for less than 7 months (18 years and over) to participate in a three-part research study (3rd trimester of pregnancy, 3 months and 6 months postpartum). We will record the sleep of future mothers, their life-partners, and infants at home with a watch, to study the associations between sleep, parental expectations, and well-being.

Participants will receive financial compensation in the form of gift cards ($30 per part of the study, for a total of three parts).

Exclusion criteria: Mother or life partner diagnosed with a depressive or anxiety disorder. Mother or life partner taking medication for depression, anxiety, or sleep.
