Our mission is to help mothers to breastfeed through mother-to-mother support, education, information, and encouragement and to promote a better understanding of breastfeeding as an important element in the healthy development of the baby and mother.


Online Facebook Meetings

Meetings are held the last Tuesday of every month from 7:30pm

You can join us for breastfeeding support and information from the comfort of your own home – pyjamas and beverage of your choice optional.

No technical ability required, just join the meeting group and be online that evening.

We’d love to see you there.
