Wynnum Group, QLD

    Our local group offers a non-judgmental, supportive atmosphere to all mums and their families to share the frustrations and the joys of parenting, and access accurate information about babies and breastfeeding.

    We support all families. Mums who are mixed-feeding, bottle feeding, exclusively expressing or not breastfeeding are always welcome. We chat in a relaxed setting and there is often access to a breastfeeding counsellor or educator who can assist you with any breastfeeding questions, worries or issues you may be having. 

    What we offer

    On the first and third Thursdays of the month we meet at the Good Shepherd Lutheran hall, 152 Belmont Road Tingalpa. Parking is available both at the front and rear of the building. The entrance to the hall is at the rear of the building. We start at 9:15am for a 9.30am start with an Info and Chat session about breastfeeding and/or general parenting and then we break for morning tea. 

    If you are pregnant, we encourage you to come and meet the group before your baby arrives. This is so much easier to do before the birth, rather than afterwards when you are trying to find your feet as a mum and everything is new!

    Dads, partners, friends and grandparents are also welcome along with babies and children of all ages. So if you’ve never been to our group before (or it’s been a while since your last visit), why not come along and say hello? We’d love to see you!

    Breastfeeding Preparation Sessions run weekly during the evenings or at weekends. We encourage you to book in if you are pregnant and wanting to learn more about breastfeeding before your baby arrives.

    Can I still come to local group events if...

    ...I haven't had my baby yet?

    Yes!  Attending group activities while you're pregnant is a great way to see other women breastfeeding and learn more about it. Many of us nowadays don't have much experience with babies until we have our own, so we need all the help we can get!

    ...everything is going fine? 

    Yes! You don't need to be having problems with breastfeeding or anything else to come along and enjoy some interesting conversation and connect with local mums. Information and support is only part of why we come - our regular attendees keep coming along because its fun to be part of our local group.

    ...I already go to a mothers' group or playgroup?

    Yes! ABA meet ups are more than a new parents' group. There are babies and children of different ages so there’s no competition over whose child reaches the next milestone first/sleeps longest/gains weight fastest.  Instead, you get to see children older than yours and find out what's ahead for you. You can also see how far your baby has come every time a newborn arrives. It really helps to get a broad perspective.

    Our local group activities are also more than just a playgroup or a coffee catch up. You get to have a conversation with another adult while your child plays. You also have access to information about raising children and can chat to a breastfeeding counsellor or educator.

    ...I don't breastfeed? 

    Yes, as long as you don't mind seeing others breastfeed. We know that sometimes things don't work out as you’d planned. We have members who are exclusively breastfeeding, pumping and bottle feeding, mixed feeding, and exclusively formula feeding.

    Everyone is welcome: no judgement, no competitions, no 'alpha parents'. We're all in this together. child is not a baby any more? 

    Yes! Mums don't stop needing support once their child is mobile or starts walking!

    ...I'm not an ABA member?

    Yes! ABA Local Group events are open to everyone. We just ask that you ‘sign-in’ using the QR provided to you by the group leader. This will give you access to free, ongoing Introductory ABA membership. 

    Joining ABA as a financial member provides us with much needed funding to continue to support mums, parents and families in the community.

      You will also need a milk collection kit to connect to the pump you hire.

      If you do not already have one, you can buy the kit when you hire a pump. Costs vary from time to time – ask when you call for current prices.

      A double collection kit costs $70 and is available at the time of hiring (the mum keeps this afterwards).


      Our guidelines for interactions with families and the cleaning of our pumps include:

        • the ABA Breast Pump Hiring Officer being well and not having been in contact with anyone who is sick
        • options for completing paperwork and payment online
        • collecting/returning the breast pump from/to the ABA Breast Pump Hiring Officer’s doorstep
        • stringent cleaning of returned pumps (Please note that it is standard practice that all mothers hiring our pumps are required to purchase their own milk collection kit which is available to buy at the time of hiring.)
        • getting breastfeeding and pumping support via telephone on the Breastfeeding Helpline 1800 686 268
        • accessing information on expressing from our website.
