Having two or more babies? 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 babies. 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 parents expecting multiples to prepare for the vital days, weeks and months after the birth of their babies. 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 multiple babies and parenting in the early days.

The Breastfeeding Multiples Education Class is specifically designed to meet the needs of parents expecting more than one baby.

Frequently asked questions:
At what stage of my pregnancy should I attend a class?
Please consider a class during your second trimester - ie between weeks 13 and 24. This is to allow for the mother's comfort and babies who arrive early. Of course, we are also happy to accommodate those further along than this!
Should my partner come too?
Absolutely! They might not be doing the breastfeeding, but can be your major support and it really helps for them to learn everything with you. If your partner is not able to attend, you can bring along a friend or other support person if you wish.

My babies are 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 or there may be another class nearby.
