Diamond Valley Group
The Diamond Valley Group of the Australian Breastfeeding Association is a community group in the north east suburbs of Melbourne. Our main purpose is to provide support and socialising to parents in the Diamond Valley area. We work towards this goal with the following activities -
- Local meetups
- Hospital grade breast pump hire
- Breastfeeding Education classes
- Community education activities
- Volunteer training
- Feed and change retreat facilities at local events
- Breastfeeding counselling
- Accreditation of local baby care rooms
- Promotion of Breastfeeding Welcome Here program
We offer support to mothers and families whether or not they are breastfeeding.
Breastfeeding counselling is available at most of our meetings. On rare occasions, there may be no breastfeeding counsellor available to attend. In these instances, support and information will be available from other mums, but you may need to speak further with a breastfeeding counsellor about what is going to work for you in your individual situation. Our Breastfeeding Helpline is available 24 hours.
The Diamond Valley Group is part of the Plenty Valley Region, and covers a large geographical area, as pictured below.
Our group has a library consisting of books about breastfeeding and other parenting issues, which members are welcome to borrow. The library is available at most meetings
