Important Information

Our classes are exclusive to new or existing Australian Breastfeeding Association members. The cost of the class is $20.00 + booking fee, plus membership if you haven't yet joined. If you are not a member please join prior to booking at:


We are currently evaluating our breastfeeding education classes with the support of the ACT Government under the ACT Health Promotions Grant Program.

Having a Baby? Have you got questions about Breastfeeding?

Come to our relaxed information-packed sessions, for expectant mothers and fathers and learn about the best start you can give your baby. Although breastfeeding is natural and best for babies and mothers, it doesn't always come easily and is a learned art. Most women given time and support can, and do, breastfeed. Our aim is to provide expectant parents with confidence to successfully breastfeed their babies.

Our courses are designed for expectant and new parents to prepare for the vital days, weeks and months after their baby's birth. We encourage parents to attend while pregnant or early after the birth. These sessions aim to expand upon the knowledge gained at antenatal classes, to give up-to-date information and insights into breastfeeding a baby and parenting in the early days.

My baby is due in the next few weeks. The class I want says it is fully booked! HELP!

Please book early to avoid disappointment as places are limited and classes fill up quickly. We are generally not able to take extra people and do not hold waiting lists for fully booked classes. However, your local group of the Australian Breastfeeding Association may have upcoming meetings you can attend before your baby is due.


Registration and membership includes:

  • Approx 4 hour workshop-style class, including time for refreshments 
  • One-year membership of the Australian Breastfeeding Association, which includes the book Breastfeeding ... naturally, valued at $35.00
  • Introduction to your local ABA network of discussions and other services for pregnant and new parents
  • One year subscription to Australian Breastfeeding Association magazine "Essence" 
  • Complimentary handout material 
  • 50% discount on breast pump hire rates
