For most mothers the easiest and most efficient way to feed your baby breastmilk is usually at the breast, but there may be occasions when this is not possible and you need to express your milk.
- your baby is premature or unable to suck well
- your baby is in hospital and you can't be there for every feed
- you are in hospital and your baby can't be there for every feed
- you have returned to the paid work force, study or other commitments
- you are leaving your baby with a sitter while you are out, or
- your breasts sometimes feel too full and uncomfortable.
We welcome everyone to come along - invite a friend. Your questions and contributions are welcome and help to reflect the range of parenting experiences. But please be respectful and thoughtful of the choices and situations of others as this can be a sensitive and sometimes challenging topic.
Want to talk about a different topic? Come along regardless - we tailor the conversation around those who attend.
A trained breastfeeding counsellor will lead a discussion but your questions and experiences will guide the discussion.
