The Hills, NSW
Welcome to our group
For the remainder of 2021 all face to face events have been suspended for our group. There are opportunities to connect online via the Zoom platform. Join us to meet new friends, chat with mothers who have 'been there', be the mother who has 'been there' for someone else and connect with trained breastfeeding volunteers. Please check our calendar for details.
Restrictions and venue availability mean we cannot offer local Breastfeeding Education Classes. Our popular Breastfeeding Education Live sessions continue to run each week. We encourage you to book in if you are pregnant and wanting to learn more about breastfeeding before your baby arrives.
Breast pump hire continues to be available.
Should you require assistance with regard to breastfeeding information and support, please call the Breastfeeding Helpline on 1800 686 268 or access Live Chat via our website at breastfeeding.asn.au
When conditions allow we will return to our usual arrangements as follows: The Hills Group meets on the 1st and 3rd Friday morning of the month at Glenhaven Community Centre. However we usually take a short break over the school holidays and/or have a combined park play and catch up with the Blacktown Group somewhere in the Hills/Blacktown area. Check the calendar for details.
You can come along and meet new friends, chat to and get hints and tips from other mothers who've 'been there' and talk to a trained, volunteer breastfeeding counsellor or educator if needed. Our local group is looked after by trained, volunteer breastfeeding counsellors who live in the area.
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
Welcome to The Hills Group of the Australian Breastfeeding Association.
Everyone is welcome to attend their local group. Whether you are pregnant, fully breastfeeding, partially breastfeeding, expressing or bottle-feeding you will be welcomed. Partners, friends and grandparents are also welcome to come along.
ABA members can attend unlimited get-togethers anywhere in Australia. Non-members are more than welcome and encouraged to attend as a visitor. If you enjoy attending your local group, please consider becoming a member of ABA as it is only through membership that ABA has the funds to continue to provide its services.
Our social gatherings are very informal and while a nominated topic is set for each date, there is always an opportunity to discuss other topics of interest within the group or individually with a counsellor.
Due to COVID 19 recommendations to avoid sharing of food and utensils we will ask you to BYO snacks and drinks or purchase something from the nearby cafe. Toilets and hand washing facilities are available and we will have hand sanitiser/wipes on hand.
