Breastfeeding and Illness

Event date: 
Monday, June 20, 2022 - 09:30 to 11:30
Event Location: 
Beeliar Community Centre - 33 Lakefront Ave Beeliar

Many mums wonder how to best protect their little ones from illness, or how to manage and maintain breastfeeding if they are sick themselves. Join us for a discussion on how amazing our bodies are at boosting our baby's immune system and some practical tips for parenting through a time of illness.

Our Southern Lakes group of the Australian Breastfeeding Association meets every 2nd Monday at Beeliar Community Centre -
33 Lakefront Ave, Beeliar WA 6164 from 9.30am.

Free drop-in breastfeeding consults with our qualified volunteer breastfeeding counsellors. No booking needed. Our catch-ups are informal and people arrive when they can – there's no such thing as late to ABA and you can leave whenever you wish!
 
'Mother-to-mother’ support, come along and meet new friends. Unwashed hair welcome! Non members welcome
We welcome you whether you are pregnant, partially or fully breastfeeding, or bottle-feeding. Everyone at ABA is 100% non judgemental and supportive of all parents however you wish to feed your baby. Partners, friends, support people, grandparents, babies, toddlers & older children all welcome
 
This venue has 2 x ACROD parking spaces and a ramp into the venue.
 
Qualified volunteer breastfeeding counsellors are available at every meet to provide free and confidential one-on-one breastfeeding information and counselling. You can grab a quiet corner anytime during the meet with a breastfeeding counsellor for private breastfeeding help
  
Remember the Breastfeeding Hotline if you need any further help or support – 1800-686-268.
Non Members Welcome. There is no cost to attend a group catch-up and you’re welcome to come along as a visitor to see what our meets are like. After a few visits you can join as a member to continue attending. Information about membership can be found here: https://aba.asn.au/join-now
