ABA booklets - The ABA produces a number of hard copy booklets, brochures and other resources that will be very helpful for mothers who wish to return to work and continue to breastfeed. Booklets that are especially helpful for mothers who are returning to work are:

  • Breastfeeding: expressing and storing breastmilk

Breastfeeding Education Classes for Expectant Parents - Althought breastfeeding is natural, it doesn't always come easily and is a learned art. The aim of the Breastfeeding Education Class is to provide expectant parents with the knowledge and confidence to successfully breastfeed. Classes are designed for expectant parents to prepare for the vital days, weeks and months after baby's birth, and are held in various locations around Australia. Find a location near you

Suggestions on Using an Electric Breast Pump - This downloadable leaflet aims to help you to use your electric breast pump well so that you can provide your breastmilk for your baby.
