Welcome to Australian Breastfeeding Association Morning Tea Friday’s in Orange for 2020!

Every second Friday, join our local ABA group for a free morning tea catch-up, including a hot cuppa and discussion about breastfeeding and parenting (see Facebook or below for topic listing). We normally have a qualified Breastfeeding Counsellor available so bring along any questions for a confidential discussion if you wish.

October, November and December 2020 topics:

  • 2nd October – Breastfeeding in the Early Days
  • 16th October – Baby Wearing
  • 30th October – Expressing and Storing Breastmilk

  • 27th November – Breastfeeding and Alcohol
  • 11th December – Baby Clothing Swap! Bring your secondhand baby goods

We open at 10 am and our discussion starts at 10.30, but we understand that little people don’t run on a schedule, so please come and leave when you need to. Bring along the kids, both big and small, our toddler area helps to entertain busy little people.

As we are volunteer based, any help to bring some light morning tea is much appreciated, but certainly not expected (no nuts please).

Please note that if you are attending the Bowling Club just for the ABA morning tea you do not need to be a member of the Bowling Club.

Polio Information Session

By No Comments

Polio Australia invites survivors of polio, along with their families and carers, to a free community information session. Years after contracting the virus, many people can experience new symptoms known as the Late Effects of Polio. This can include increasing muscle weakness, pain, fatigue, breathing problems and a range of other issues.

The session will discuss information about the Late Effects of Polio, how to work well with health professionals, and self-management strategies. This will also be an opportunity to connect with other polio survivors in your area.

For more information, contact Steph Cantrill on 0466 719 613, or steph@polioaustralia.org.au.
