Breastfeeding friendly venues

Looking for a supportive venue to breastfeed? Check out our accredited Breastfeeding Welcome Here venues. 

Breastfeeding Welcome Here

You have the right to breastfeed anywhere in public. The Australian Breastfeeding Association (ABA)'s Breastfeeding Welcome Here venues initiative improves community support and awareness of breastfeeding in public by promoting breastfeeding supportive premises.  

These venues include but are not limited to: 

  • Cafés 

  • Hairdressers 

  • Community centers 

  • Public Libraries 

Breastfeeding Welcome Here venues support your right to breastfeed and help to promote it by displaying a Breastfeeding Welcome Here sticker on their premises. This helps you to recognise Breastfeeding Welcome Here venues, along with the venue listing on our website (hyperlink).
