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.

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.
