Welcome to the ABA ACT / NSW Branch!
We provide breastfeeding information and support to mums and their families right across NSW and the ACT.
Our network of local groups offers breastfeeding education, information and support from pregnancy through to your child’s first birthday and well beyond.
We look forward to supporting you to achieve your breastfeeding goals, whatever they may be.
We are currently offering online breastfeeding education through ABA’s interactive Breastfeeding Preparation Sessions. Learning about breastfeeding during pregnancy is great preparation for life with your new baby.
ACT/NSW Branch local groups offer catch ups and activities online and in your community. You can access local breastfeeding information and peer support and connect with a parenting village for friendship and support. Local group events are free for ABA members.
Our qualified volunteers also engage with local health professionals to ensure that they have the information and skills they need to provide best practice care of breastfeeding women and babies.
We are involved in a range of activities and advocacy programs to support our vision of a breastfeeding-inclusive society. Look out for our resources in your local hospital and health centre and come and say hello if you see our ‘Feed and Change’ tents at community events.
