Online Event: Online via Zoom. Please email for details

Lets catch up via Zoom and have a bit of fun sorting through some common facts or myths of breastfeeding.

Please email us on for the Zoom link to join in.
If you haven't used Zoom before on your phone, laptop or PC the link will prompt you to download an app to get you started. This will happen the first time only
Please respect the privacy of everyone in this group by not recording or taking screenshots.
At ABA we operate our catch-ups under a Code of Ethics:
We are using Zoom. Some tips:
- You can turn on and off both your microphone and video as you need to. Please feel free to step away and come back to the Zoom session.
- We suggest you mute your audio if you aren't talking frequently, just to keep down background noise
- You can type any question or comment in the chat box
- Click on your name to see the option to raise your hand if you want to get our attention for anything
- Try selecting "Gallery View" or "Speaker View" to see which view you prefer
Other things that might help you:
- You might find it useful to have your charger handy as Zoom can chew through your device battery sometimes.
- If you have a window behind you it can make your face a bit dark. You might like to pull the blind or curtain shut, or angle the camera away from the window.
If you are seeking breastfeeding counselling we can use the 'breakout room' feature to have a private chat with a counsellor if one is available . Just let us know if you want a private chat.
