Lucy Geng shares about ABA's impact on her life, as a breastfeeding mum and volunteer

Lucy breastfed her first child for nine months before she found out about ABA resources towards the end of her breastfeeding journey. She joined her local ABA group and found the experience to be very positive and inclusive.  

 

"√Ź really enjoyed my ABA local group as I was heard by people who listened to me in a non-judgmental way, and which made me feel included at all times. This group has given me confidence to breastfeed my second child which is due in March 2024."¬†
