We have lots of exciting events planned and hope you will join the celebrations. Breastfeeding, while natural, is a learned skill, so come along to one of our meetings to help you get off to the right start with information and knowledge. Our meetings are informal and supportive, providing an opportunity to meet other mums and to share ideas and feelings about breastfeeding and mothering. Our meetings are child and baby friendly. More than breastfeeding counselling.... you don’t need to have a breastfeeding problem or to be breastfeeding to come along, as your experiences of being a mother are valuable. So join us for a couple of meetings and see how we function. We rely on the fantastic and generous work of our volunteer members to keep our group running. For details of the activities of the group, please contact group leaders Hazel 4283 4114 and Teena 4262 8113. NEW MOTHERS AND PREGNANT WOMEN WELCOME!
