-----------------------------------------

Australian Breastfeeding Association (ABA) Greater Geelong group offers breastfeeding information and support to families through local support group meeting and events, antenatal breastfeeding classes, breast pump hire, and much more.

Our support group catch-ups are a great opportunity to meet other mums and discuss all kinds of parenting topics, not just breastfeeding. We meet in a variety of places around the Geelong area. Some events will have a discussion topic, while others are 'chat and play'. We support all families. Mums who are not breastfeeding are always welcome. We chat in a relaxed setting and most meetings have a qualified Breastfeeding Counsellor in attendance who can assist you with any breastfeeding questions, worries or issues you may be having. Our events are very informal and are run by volunteers. There is no need to RSVP, and no-one minds if you’re running late or need to leave early!  Check out our Calendar tab for dates.

Everyone is welcome at ABA events, including fathers, friends and grandparents. Babies and children (of all ages) are, of course, welcome too! Pregnant mums are very welcome to come along before their baby arrives. So if you’ve never been to our support group before (or it’s been a while since your last visit), why don’t you come along and say hello? We’d love to see you!

Announcement - Geelong Breastfeeding Drop-in:

We are thrilled to launch our new 'drop-in' breastfeeding support service. Held on the first Thursday of every month, families are invited to attend with any breastfeeding questions or concerns. Qualified breastfeeding counsellors will be present to offer support, watch a feed, and provide any relevant information and resources. Members and friends also welcome for a cuppa, chat and play.

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.
