Welcome to our group
Welcome to Western Victoria Group. Our group area is geographically very large, covering a big chunk of the western part of Victoira, hence our name. The main centres are Ararat, Stawell, Horsham, Rainbow, Edenhope, Cohuna..
Distance prevents easy travelling to group discussions face-to-face, so we meet virtually, mostly using Facebook - Australian Breastfeeding Association Western Victoria Group. .
Please get in contact with Emma or Pixie if you have any questions about the Group or want a breastfeeding counselling chat.
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.

Have you thought about helping our Group? There are lots of ways to help, from being a local friendly breastfeeding mum in your town or area, to giving an ABA gift membership to a pregnant friend, and many more ideas. See Group Helpers (Volunteering) information in the main tabs. Maybe you'd be interested in training to be a community educator or counsellor. What's involved? Start with the Training Tab above, and also shoot Emma an email. We'd love to hear from you...in whatever way you'd like to be part of ABA and our Group.
