The Australian Breastfeeding Association’s West Coastal group, which meets monthly at the Hainsworth Centre in Girrawheen, has added sessions at Joondalup Family Centre in Jolstra Crescent to its schedule.

Breastfeeding counsellor Danielle Billington said Joondalup would cater for members seeking a more central location.

‘Meetings alternate between a discussion topic covering breastfeeding or general parenting and a chat and play morning,’ she said.

‘Sessions are facilitated by a qualified breastfeeding counsellor and a community educator who hold a Certificate IV in breastfeeding education.

‘Guest speakers are invited along periodically.

‘It is a great place to make new friends, find information and share experiences in a friendly, relaxed environment.’

Meetings are on the first Friday of the month in Girrawheen, 9.45-11.45am and the third Thursday in Joondalup, 11.30am-1.30pm.

Both centres have pram access, toys, outdoor playground and tea and coffee.
