While there though, an awesome lactation consultant came in for the breastfeeding class - she told us all about how she came to India in the 70s and struggled to breastfeed newborn twins among the big formula push of that era. She really convinced me that if she could do that, I could certainly make it work with one baby today!
She runs several lactation groups on the south shore, and they have a workshop every month for expectant mothers, if you're interested:
They actually had a cloth diaper workshop today, and next week is the prenatal practical workshop:
Another lactation group is MAM: http://www.mam.qc.ca/ I didn't have a car so I couldn't go, but my friend did and it was a major support system for her.
Good luck with the impending arrival! I'm in Saint-Hubert - where are you?

Qbear'smama: I tried a couple of CLSCs and was told that they couldn't take me because I'm out of region. I will try that one though!
Dreamy: Our doula is actually with MAM! We're in Howick, southwest of Chateauguay. It takes us about an hour to get to MAM, and it seems as though most of the services are in French (my DP is from Toronto). We were lucky enough to get a perfectly bilingual doula, though. I will definitely have to look into those workshops! They sound right up our alley, and really what we want to focus on. Thank you!
