Lake Macquarie, NSW
Welcome to our group
For the remainder of 2021 all face to face events have been suspended for our group. There are opportunities to connect online via the Zoom platform. Join us to meet new friends, chat with mothers who have 'been there', be the mother who has 'been there' for someone else and connect with trained breastfeeding volunteers. Please check our calendar for details.
Restrictions and venue availability mean we cannot offer local Breastfeeding Education Classes. Our popular Breastfeeding Education Live sessions continue to run each week. We encourage you to book in if you are pregnant and wanting to learn more about breastfeeding before your baby arrives.
Breast pump hire continues to be available.
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.
