There's someone new in your neighbourhood!

The Australian Breastfeeding Association has a new breastfeeding centre in Dandenong!

We are pleased to announce our new office and breastfeeding centre is now open in Robinson Street Dandenong!

We offer a whole range of services for families across CGD and beyond, including:

· Breast pump hire
· Breastfeeding Education Classes
· Informal drop in for breastfeeding mothers and babies
· Culturally diverse resources and peer support training
· Baby Care Room, including private space for breastfeeding.
· Educational DVD and video viewing onsite
· Free breastfeeding information and resources
· Access to volunteer breastfeeding counsellors
· Friendly atmosphere for breastfeeding support and education

Our hours are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday between 10am and 4pm (closed for lunch from 12.30-1pm) and other times by arrangement. We look forward to increasing awareness of the importance of breastfeeding and creating a welcoming community through awards of Breastfeeding Welcome Here, Baby Care Room and Breastfeeding Friendly Workplace Accreditation and will be working with local businesses and services to make Dandenong a Breastfeeding Friendly City.

Pop in and say hello, grab a tea or coffee and have a chat.
