Hi everyone,

We seem to say this every month, but boy, has it been another busy month. We have had ongoing election advocacy, National Mothering Week and National Volunteer Week. You may have also seen some unfortunate extra attention on us in the media (read our statement about this here).

We have received many responses from party leaders, ministers and candidates regarding their commitment to support ABA in implementing the ANBS 2019. You can find the official responses from the three major parties here. Scroll down to find PDF attachments at the bottom of the page along with our gorgeous election priorities document.

Enrolments are now open for our highly regarded Diploma of Breastfeeding Management. Or if you would just like to dip your toe in you might like to check out our one-day workshop Taking lactation histories and conduct breastfeeding assessments. Find information for both here.

That’s all for me. Thank you to those who volunteer among us – it is National Volunteer Week as I write – and we really are Better Together!
