Welcome to our group
In normal times our group offers information and support at mum2mum gatherings where mothers can connect with other mothers, make new friends and speak with trained volunteer breastfeeding counsellors.
Sadly our face-to-face gatherings are currently suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Please access the alternate ways we are supporting our members. You can stay in touch by checking this website or join our facebook group for regular updates.

Breast pump hire
During this time of the COVID-19 pandemic we are aware of the need for additional health measures when hiring breast pumps. We are also aware that mothers will still need to use pumps to express milk for their babies.
We now have updated guidelines for interactions with families and the cleaning of our pumps. Please see the pump hire webpage - https://www.breastfeeding.asn.au/node/24866/bph
