Why attend?

Australian research has shown that many mothers wish they had received more preparation for breastfeeding and the early months of parenting prior to the birth of their baby. Attending an Breastfeeding Education Class complements and expands on any knowledge gained at antenatal classes and gives you the opportunity to:

  • Learn some of the skills you will need to care for your new baby 
  • Find out how breastfeeding works, how to do it and what help is available 
  • Make informed choices about breastfeeding 
  • Realistically prepare for the changes about to happen in your life 
  • Discuss questions and concerns you may have about breastfeeding 
  • Develop a support network before giving birth 
  • Find your own path amidst all the varying advice

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.

  • Approx 3 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
