Notes: (*)

  • Cancellations with less than 24 hrs will incur a minimum charge of 1 hour fee.  Please see below for our Cancellation Policy Terms & Conditions.
  • The Travel Fee is based on the distance from our offices beyond 20km. We are located in the area of Bloor St W & Hwy 427.
  • Calculate the travel distance to our offices using the following map
  • It's important to realize that asking your Lactation Consultant to visit you and your baby at Home or Hospital requires scheduling the EXTRA time to travel to and from your location.  This means that the Lactation Consultant has to block ALL the required time in her agenda, and forego seeing other moms and babies during your Onsite visit.  Additionally, there are logistics expenses involved related to the transportation and parking.  For this reason, please note that Lactation Consultant Services provided at your home or Hospital will include an additional Travel Fee to cover the Travel Time of the LC and Vehicle Expenses.  
    • The additional Travel Fee is approximately $1.75/km (each way) if your home or hospital is outside our regular service area in Toronto.  Please contact us for additional information.
  • Any parking fees will also be charged back to the client, since this is not part of our service fee and is different depending on the Hospital or Public Parking availability for visits at your Location.
  • At VitaNurture Toronto Breastfeeding, we are committed to providing choices in a transparent manner.  For this reason, we encourage you and your baby to take advantage of our reduced rates when visiting us at our Offices, with easy TTC access and free street parking right in front of our door!
