More about our group

Our group generally meets at members’ houses most alternate weeks - sometimes in the evenings. We also have a semi regular dessert night for mums.

Our meetings are a casual gathering of mums, bubs, toddlers and preschoolers (and sometimes other assorted family members) sharing experiences and supporting one another. Meetings are informal, with mothers and their children coming and going during meetings times as it suits them. Please don’t worry if you’re running late for a meeting. We run on mother time and understand it can be difficult to get out the door on time; we’d rather see you for a short time than not at all.

We encourage guests, so feel free to come along to a meeting. Guests are encouraged to join the Australian Breastfeeding Association after two visits. You can access all our meeting dates via the calendar tab at the top of the page. Currently we have group meeting dates planned through until October 2017

A trained, volunteer breastfeeding counsellor is available at most meetings.
