Three generations of mothers share their experiences of ABA's impact on their lives over six decades 

Katie's, Ainslie's, and Lauren's stories illustrate the lasting impact of ABA across generations. Our 60th anniversary is a unique opportunity to help ABA to reach our goal of raising $60,000 to support the next generation of mothers and families. 



New mum Lauren reflected on how ABA provided trusted breastfeeding information when she had baby Celia a few months ago. 

If it wasn't for the education and information that came from ABA, I am not sure we would've been as successful at breastfeeding 



Now a mum to three teenagers, Ainslie believes in trusting herself as she knew her babies best back when she had her three children in the 2010s.  

For me, and I think the biggest thing for new mums, is just finding the trust in yourself that you know your baby best. You’ve also got all these ABA resources and support, so keep an open mind.  



A mum of two and a grandmother of three, Katie joined ABA after meeting with them in the 1980s.  

Forty years ago, when I was doing my midwifery training, I came across ABA. Some volunteers came to talk to the students and give us more information about breastfeeding. So, when I had my first baby 35 years ago, it was a no-brainer that I joined ABA before I had Adele.



A mum of one (Kaylee, 5 months old), Caitlyn found ABA from a local group's Facebook page

I realised that ABA was a trusted source of information, and I wanted them to be my single source of truth when I was going through learning how to breastfeed.
