Lactation Support for your Breastfeeding, Bodyfeeding, or Pumping Journey!

Breastfeeding support - on your terms!

BEE Program Mentors are trained peer volunteers with diverse lived breastfeeding, chestfeeding, and pumping experiences of at least 6 months.

You can text, call or email for support with your BEE Mentor match! Mentors can meet in-person in a public space, but not in homes. 

BEE Mentors provide evidence-based information & support when you need it.

All peer mentors have successfully completed an 18-hour breastfeeding course recognized by the World Health Organization.

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.
