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.

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

Our meetings

Pascoe-Hume hold group meetings each week. Due to COVID-19 pandemic, we are running outdoor play and chat session and online catch ups. Non members and members are welcome to join us at all meetings. The dates for these meetings can be found on Australian Breastfeeding Association North West Facebook page or here.

Our 'meetings' are relaxed and informal with a breastfeeding and/or parenting focus. It is lead by an Australian Breastfeeding Association trained Counsellor. They are there to help you and your baby, and to answer any breastfeeding questions. They can also help with attachment and positioning if needed. 

  • All mums are welcome at all get-togethers, including partners and friends – you don’t have to be breastfeeding to come along. Of course, Toddlers and older children are always welcome too; infact lots of mums come along to ABA for socialisation of their older children!
  • Non-members are welcome to attend one or two get-togethers before joining to the Australian Breastfeeding Association.
  • We appreciate you bring along a plate of something simple if you've had a good day, but don't let having nothing to bring put you off coming – you are still most welcome to come along.
Members are welcome to contact Pascoe-Hume Breastfeeding Councellors Bonnie, Wendy or Brydie for phone or video counselling. Non members (and members) please contact the National Breastfeeding Helpline on 1800 MUM 2 MUM.

Expecting?

Come along to one of our meetings to get to know us before you have your baby. It's a great idea to come to a meeting or two between when you finish up work and having your baby.

Find out about our Breastfeeding Education Classes. Our classes are in high demand, so you need to book in early.

New baby?

We'd love to meet you and your baby. Come along to one of our meetings. Don't worry if you're late - we run on baby time!

Some new mothers find it all too difficult to get out of the house, and some just want to cocoon themselves with their baby. Whatever your situation and your preferences, we can offer information and friendly mother-to-mother support. If you are a member, join our Facebook group or post on the discussions here on our web pages.

If you need information, support or reassurance, chat to a trained breastfeeding counsellor on the Breastfeeding Helpline 1800 686 268. And of course there is a wealth of reliable research-based information here on the ABA website.
