Welcome to our group
Welcome to Blacktown ABA
Our group offers information and support in our roles as parents. Come along and meet new friends, chat with mums with babies and children of different ages and at different stages, and connect with trained breastfeeding volunteers.
The Blacktown group meets on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month, however we usually take a short break over the school holidays and/or have a combined park play and catch up with The Hills Group somewhere in the Hills/Blacktown area. Check the calendar for details.
Please check our calendar tab for specific meeting details and we hope to catch up with you at a meeting soon!
Our group offers information and support in our roles as parents. Come along and meet new friends, chat with mothers who have 'been there' and connect with trained breastfeeding volunteers. Whether you're fully breastfeeding, partially breastfeeding, expressing or bottle feeding, it’s great to chat to other mums and get those hints and tips that only other mums know!
With the current restrictions on in-person gatherings, many local groups across Australia are running virtual and online get-togethers. You can view our national calendar of events to find a full listing, and attend a group anywhere in Australia.

All our meetings are very informal and friendly, breastfeeding and early parenting queries on any topic are always welcome. It's a great place to make friends and build up a support network which feels so good to be a part of whether just starting out with breastfeeding or continuing along the parenting / mothering path with all the varying challenges and joys that come our way.
Everyone is welcome - mums, dads, babies, older children, carers, grandparents etc. You don't need to be a member to come along, though if you are enjoying the support our meetings offer after trying them out a couple of times we would love you to join up and help support the ABA to train other volunteers to keep services like local groups and the National Breastfeeding Helpline running (and also for insurance purposes). Mums-to-be are encouraged to come along before the big day, too.
