Welcome to our group
The Marrickville Group is not currently hosting meetings due to work commitments of our volunteer breastfeeding counsellors.
We would encourage you to attend meetings in the surrounding groups - Strathfield, CityWest, Randwick, Sutherland Shire, Bondi Junction etc. All ABA local groups cover topics including breastfeeding, weaning, baby wearing, play, discipline, introducing family foods and other parenting related topics.
The ABA welcome all parents, carers and supporters to our meetings and we also welcome children from newborns to school age. We hope that you will find us to be open, welcoming and supportive. Your shared experience may make the difference to another mother.
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.

More about our group
The Marrickville Group has a closed Facebook group which it shares with the CityWest Group. As our Facebook is for paid ABA members group you will need to request to join & answer the questions when you request to join, it will make the process much faster. We use the page to remind members of upcoming meetings and events, inform them of events in the wider ABA community and share news which may be relevant to our parenting.
If you are not an ABA member you can see our meetings listed on our Facebook page, which we share with surrounding groups - https://www.facebook.com/abainnermetrosydney/
We take part in the annual ABA raffle which sells from Valentine's Day to Mother's Day.
