Welcome to our group

Our group offers information and support in our roles as parents. Come along and meet new friends, chat with mothers who have 'been there' and connect with trained breastfeeding volunteers. Our meetings are very informal, much like a "drop-in", with mothers and their children coming and going between those times as it suits them.  Our venue is very child friendly with both indoor and outdoor toys and play equipment for babies and children.

We meet in the playgroup rooms of Flamingo Children's Centre (21 Merryn Grove, Wantirna South 3152) between 10am - 12pm on Tuesday's during school terms.

Most weeks we have a casual gathering of mums, bubs, toddlers and preschoolers (and sometimes other assorted family members) sharing experiences and supporting one another, but every few weeks we have an informal discussion of a particular topic relating to breastfeeding or parenting. Both coffee mornings and discussion meetings offer those present an opportunity to share their experiences and support each other through different breastfeeding and parenting challenges or situations. Personal Breastfeeding Counselling with a trained and qualified Breastfeeding Counsellor is available to answer any questions or discuss any breastfeeding or parenting issues, difficulties or challenges in confidence. 

A plate to share is always welcome, if you have the time. Please be aware that we have an allergenic food policy for the safety of all. We ask for no nuts to be brought to meetings. We encourage parents to bring a snack box for their child and to ensure that children are seated at the table while eating.

We have a group library with lots of resources (books and DVDs) for members to browse and borrow from. Once a month we have an evening discussion meeting at a members home, or a social gathering. 

We encourage casual visitors, so feel free to attend for one or two meetings to check us out before deciding wether or not you would like to join. Regular attendees are encouraged to join the Association after two visits.  

Anyone is welcome at our meetings, whether you are still expecting your baby, are fully breastfeeding, partially breastfeeding or not breastfeeding at all.  

An information sharing forum for members of the Knox group of the Australian Breastfeeding Association is available to join on Facebook.

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.
