Come along and join other mums for chat  ... and your first coffee is on us Smile Bring a friend or family member too.

The fabulous indoor play area is now open from 10am - join us for a chat & to let the kids play before we start our discussion around 10:30am.

Let's talk about breastfeeding older babies and children which comes with different challenges than the early weeks and months. We'll also talk about coping with criticism and pressure to wean. What are the advantages of continued breastfeeding as your child grows?

We welcome everyone to come along regardless of the stage you and your baby are at now and whatever your choices are about how long to breastfeed. 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.


Even if you have now weaned, or your baby is still young, feel free to come along to ask any questions about breastfeeding - we'll be happy to answer questions and guide you through any challenges.

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.
