The Australian Breastfeeding Association Canberra group has suspended all face-to-face activities, including discussion sessions, antenatal breastfeeding education classes and playgroups. We are providing regular virtual Q&A sessions using Zoom, hosted by a local breastfeeding counsellor or community educator. The list of sessions is available on our webpage www.aba.asn.au/Events or our Facebook page www.facebook.com/ABAACTSNSW.
The National Breastfeeding Helpline 1800 686 268 (freecall) is available for individual breastfeeding counselling support 7 days a week.
Antenatal breastfeeding education sessions will be running from mid-April. The sessions will be delivered online, facilitated by breastfeeding counsellors and community educators. For more information on how to register, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
