Training

The ABM offers a range of training options, from our short course for parents and families, to in-depth courses for mothers and professionals to enable them to support others with breastfeeding.

Team Baby: getting ready to breastfeed.

We know that breastfeeding is teamwork. It’s about knowing how breastfeeding works, knowing how newborns behave and knowing where to get help.

ABM Mother Supporter Course

Pause in accepting applications: We’re delighted at the success of our popular ABM Mother Supporter training course. To keep up with the volume of incoming trainees we need to complete some essential updates to the learning platform online, and our training team needs to focus on those changes for a short while. As a result we’re not going to accept any applications for Mother Supporter training from Monday 9 November 2020 to Monday 1 February 2021. If we don’t receive your application by 9 November, please wait until 1 February to submit it. Thank you for your patience.
