More about our group

Pregnant? New baby? Got questions? Not sure what it's all about? Attend a meeting and find out!

Whether you are fully breastfeeding, partially breastfeeding, expressing or bottle-feeding, it's great to chat to other mums and get those hints and tips that only other mums know!

Our group meets three times a month.

  • On the first Friday of the month at East Creek Community Centre, 43 Kitchener St, East Toowoomba at 9.45 am. The August meeting will be at Toowoomba City Library, Level 3
  • On the third Friday of the month at St Bart's Anglican Church, 103 Stenner Street, Middle Ridge, Toowoomba from 9.45 am to 11.30 am (Excluding April and December) 
  • Coffee evenings (with a table topic which is offered for discussion) are held on the last Friday of each month (none in December 2019) at Park House Cafe, 92 Margaret Street (opposite Queens Park), Toowoomba from 7.30 pm until late. October meet up is at RICBC (Corner of Neil and Herries Streets). Late arrivals, babies and children (sorry, no play area) welcome. A trained volunteer breastfeeding counsellor or community educator will lead a casual discussion.

We usually have an informal discussion topic at most of our meetings/events and you can see the topics on our calendar.  Our morning venues are child-friendly, so babies, toddlers and older children are very welcome.  Members, non-members, grandparents, family and friends are also welcome.  A simple plate of food to share is appreciated but not expected. Tea, coffee (both including decaf) and herbal teas are provided, along with welcoming arms to hold your baby while you drink them. 

Come along for breastfeeding information and to meet other mums. A trained volunteer breastfeeding counsellor and/or community educator is available at all discussion meetings.  Your shared experience might make the difference to another mother.

Our group has a library consisting of books and DVDs about breastfeeding and other parenting issues, which everyone is welcome to borrow for free. The library is available at most meetings.  See under Files tab for list of books and DVDs in our library.
