Australian Breastfeeding Assoc. Orange Morning Tea

By No Comments

Due to Corona Virus, Orange ABA are currently running fortnightly ONLINE mothers catch ups during school terms.

This is our plan for Term 2 2020, after which we will re-evaluate in line with relevant laws and guidelines at that time.

We would encourage all new or experienced mothers to join us for a bit of socialisation amongst caring for your little ones. We will have a good chat and also have experienced Breastfeeding Counsellors or Breastfeeding Community Educators available to answer your breastfeeding queries in either a group setting or using a function where you can enter an individual online session one on one.

To access these catch ups, please head to our facebook page: and either mark yourself as “going” or PM our page and we will send you the meeting link. Alternatively, email us at

All welcome regardless of membership or local group. Mothers supporting mothers!

Australian Breastfeeding Assoc. Orange Morning Tea

By No Comments

Welcome to Australian Breastfeeding Association Morning Tea Friday’s in Orange for 2019!

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.


February, March and April 2020 topics:

  • 7th February – Welcome to 2020 – Return to Work or Study
  • 21st February – Breastfeeding, Nighttime Parenting, and Sleep
  • 6th March – Introducing Family Foods
  • 20th March – Breastfeeding and Medication
  • 3rd April – Breastfeeding Myths and Realities


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).

RAHS Regional Seminar – Looking to the Future and Discovering the Past

By No Comments

The Royal Australian Historical Society (RAHS), in conjunction with Central West Libraries, invites you to join us for an exciting regional seminar in Orange on Saturday March 14, 2020.

The seminar will appeal to anyone who wishes to learn more about historical records for the study of local history, including land title research, discovering the secrets cemeteries can reveal, and improving your research using Trove (the National Library of Australia’s free online database).

As RAHS President Christine Yeats explains, ‘you don’t have to be an expert to come to the seminar – you just need to be interested in the people and place from the past’. ‘There is so much to discover about Australian history and going back to original source materials is critical in truly understanding the life experiences of our ancestors’.
