The Breastfeeding Buddy Tool was developed in collaboration with Perinatal Services BC and the Public Health Agency of Canada. The videos and photographs were developed in additional collaboration with BC Women's Hospital and Health Centre and the BC Institute of Technology. We would like to thank the new mothers and families involved for sharing their personal moments to help women in BC learn more about breastfeeding. (The opinions expressed on this website do not necessarily reflect the official views of the Public Health Agency of Canada.)
