Please note: Due to the Covid-19 crisis, ABM volunteers are not currently authorised to do face-to-face breastfeeding support. We are able to support remotely only, including through the helplines.

Supporting Mothers, Nurturing Families

Welcome to the Association of Breastfeeding Mothers

ABM are a group of trained volunteers dedicated to supporting breastfeeding mums and their families. We’ve been supporting mums and nurturing families for almost 40 years. We’d love you to join us. Become a member of the ABM and help us continue our work.

As well as supporting breastfeeding mums, we offer training for mothers, families and healthcare professionals who want to further their knowledge. Many of our breastfeeding counsellors are mums who’ve benefited from ABM support and now want to share their knowledge and experience.
