Support after hours
The Australian Breastfeeding Association (ABA) offers a 7 day breastfeeding counselling service. ABA breastfeeding counsellors are all trained volunteers who have breastfed for at least nine months and undertaken the ABA breastfeeding counsellor training course. They provide counselling and breastfeeding information to anyone seeking help.
ABA counsellors can be contacted on 1800 686 268. Alternatively visit www.breastfeeding.asn.au
Please note: Counsellors are not medically trained, therefore cannot give medical advice, only breastfeeding management support information.
