Breastfeeding resources for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families

Breastfeeding: for your baby, for you, for your community

Indigenous baby and mother
The ABA acknowledges the traditional custodians of the Lands known as Australia.  We pay our respects to their Elders past, present, and emerging. We acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women who have breastfed their babies on Country for more than 60,000 years, and the partners, families, and communities who support them.

With information and support, you can breastfeed your baby just as your mothers, grandmothers and aunties have for more than 60 000 years. 

Need support? We're here to help.
