Verdun opens its doors to breastfeeding moms

A number of municipal buildings in Verdun will now provide free, welcoming spaces for breastfeeding moms to feed their children.

The borough will be part of Route du lait, a network of breastfeeding-friendly businesses and establishments. In order to be a part of the network, the space must provide a place where mothers can breastfeed without having to purchase anything.

The borough has put together a list of municipal buildings that will now provide those spaces.

 

They are:

  • ​Marcel-Giroux community centre,
  • Elgar community centre,
  • Verdun cultural centre,
  • Outdoor pools,
  • The borough hall office,
  • The Verdun Auditorium,
  • La Station community centre in Nuns’ Island,
  • The chalets at Willibrord and Arthur-Therrien parks.

The network, which is an initiative of breastfeeding support group Nourri Source Montreal, already includes more than 200 establishments in Verdun, N.D.G., the Plateau Mont-Royal and the West Island.
