Why join ABA?

ABA has been supporting mums with their breastfeeding goals since 1964. See what other mums say about what ABA membership means to them. 

Elly Ellul and Amelie 

"I started coming to ABA meetings about a month before Amelie was born. Surrounding myself with knowledgeable and supportive people really nurtured my confidence and self-belief as a mum."

Amber Perry and Ruby 

“The newsletter, booklets, training courses and local support groups were all fantastic.  I felt so prepared, and we’ve had a fantastic breastfeeding experience.”  

Bianca Stocker and Ryan 

“It was reassurance and guidance in the haze of the first 6-weeks, then it was friendship and support at local group meetings and finally the wealth of information.”  

Christina D’Amato and Jessica 

“I have made the most amazing life-long friends who supported and helped me through those difficult and confusing times. Joining ABA was one of the smartest choices I have ever made.”  

Lee-Ann Foord 

“ABA has given me confidence and skills and led me into a new career (post new motherhood). My life would be very different without ABA.”
