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 group, based in the far south-west of Victoria, offers information and support about breastfeeding and parenting. Come along and meet new friends, chat with mothers who have 'been there' and connect with trained breastfeeding volunteers.

We hold monthly discussion meetings, regular Breastfeeding Education Classes, and a closed Facebook page - Australian Breastfeeding Association Portland Group, as well as offering breastpump hire. Group discussions are held once a month on Thursdays, either at Portland TAFE, Hurd St from 10am, or at a member's house in the evening; check out our latest calendar for more info. 

In collaboration with Swan Hill and District Group, we have the highly popular Feeding Cues Group Project - educational photo packs, poster and pads of tear off sheets. 

 We love running talks about breastfeeding for early childhood centres, primary and secondary schools, and child care students.  We love having a mum and baby with us to show real-life breastfeeding as well.
