Welcome to our group
Our group offers information and support in our roles as parents. We are working at having some online Zoom meet ups.Come along and meet new friends, chat with mothers who have 'been there' and connect with trained breastfeeding volunteers. We will put these in the calendar, email members and put posts on the Newcastle/Hunter facebook page.... See the link on our webpage.
