Welcome to our group
Our group offers evidence-based information and education as well as counselling and support to mothers who are breastfeeding. Come along and meet new friends, chat with other mothers who have 'been there' and connect with trained volunteer breastfeeding counsellors. We hold discussion meetings, coffee mornings and have a Facebook page and Facebook group.
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
We usually meet every 1st and 3rd Tuesday at the Attadale Community Facility from 12 noon to 2.00 pm. We hold one topic discussion and one chat and play per month. Please contact Kirsten if you would like a copy of the current sessions to be emailed to you.
PLEASE NOTE: It is with regret that due to COVID-19, all face-to-face meetings were suspended from 17th March 2020 until July 2020. We have now resumed our face-to-face get-togethers. Also, look out for information about online get-togethers and our free National Breastfeeding Helpline support service on 1800 686 268 as well as Live Chat. In addition, we have an app - "mum2mum" - that may be of interest to you. We also have a Facebook page for interested friends and a Facebook group for members only. We look forward to your attendance at our get-togethers.
