Dr. Jack Newman established Canada’s first breastfeeding clinic in 1984 at The Hospital for Sick Children. Soon he opened clinics in several Toronto hospitals as the need for his expertise grew.

In 2001, Edith Kernerman began working with Dr. Newman at the Toronto Western Hospital and soon after at the Humber River Regional Hospital, Finch site; at St Michael’s Hospital breastfeeding Clinic; and, in January 2003, they moved from Toronto Western to North York General Hospital and maintained a clinic there until December 2005. 

The Newman Breastfeeding Clinic & Institute was co-founded by Jack Newman and Edith Kernerman in 2006 and is now based in the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine, in Toronto, Canada.

At the NBCI, our practitioners keep up-to-date with current breastfeeding and birthing practices through professional conferences, research, workshops, and continuing education courses; and, we continue to learn on a daily basis from the mothers and babies we help.

We are able to converse with mothers in French, Spanish, Korean, and Hungarian. As well, our handouts are available in all of these languages as well as Chinese.

We have an instructional DVD available in French and English, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, and Russian, Dr. Jack Newman’s Visual Guide to Breastfeeding, with Jack Newman and Edith Kernerman.  To order our DVD or for more information on our DVD
