Do you need a lift?

The Australian Breastfeeding Association
supports parents who wish to breastfeed their
babies. ABA strives to create an awareness of
the importance of human milk in the
community, whilst recognising that
breastfeeding is just one part of skilled and
loving mothering.
Do you need a lift?
Many members are happy to collect others on
their way to meetings. Please contact us if this
would be helpful to you.
If you have any breastfeeding questions,
whether or not they relate to the meeting
topic, please feel free to speak to a counsellor.
Meetings are free, but it is suggested the you
join ABA after two meetings, for insurance
purposes.
