BEE Mentor Match Request Form
BEE Mentors are trained peer volunteers with personal breastfeeding experience who help connect breastfeeding or chestfeeding parents to community resources, current breastfeeding information and other breastfeeding moms/families. Due to current funding, our 1:1 peer match service is available to parents within Alberta. If you are located outside of Alberta and looking for breastfeeding support, virtual support may be available. Please contact us for more information.
If you are pregnant you can attend NorthernStar's Prenatal Breastfeeding Basics Class, which is also free!
