Tessa Dittrich hopes mothers with young babies will attend tomorrow’s meeting in Bridgetown.

Anyone interested in supporting breastfeeding, whether for themselves or for others, is invited to a meeting tomorrow of the Warren Blackwood group of the Australian Breastfeeding Association.

After a five-year hiatus the group is back in operation, ready to provide a support network for breastfeeding mothers and mums-to-be.

The meeting is at 10.30am in the playgroup area at the Bridgetown Family and Community Centre, corner of Roe and Steere streets. ABA counsellor and meeting organiser Tessa Dittrich said everyone, not just young mums, was welcome — young, not-so-young, female, male, or health professionals with an interest in babies.

Tea and coffee is provided for a gold coin donation.

A counsellor will be present at the meeting, which will tie in with the centre’s weekly Baby Playgroup session.

Mrs Dittrich said the idea at this stage was to have a meeting once a month in Bridgetown, although the group covered Manjimup, Pemberton, Boyup Brook, Nannup and Kirup so mothers from a wide area could share their experiences.

On the other weeks friendships between mothers with young babies could be further developed during the playgroup session.
