BMSG August Mum 2 Mum (M2M) Meet up

Our monthly mothers’ gatherings are a great way to socialise and network with other mummies. Our BMSG trained counsellors will also be there to answer any queries that you have about breastfeeding.

These meetups are open to all breastfeeding and pregnant mothers. Babies and young kids are welcome to attend, however, due to space constraints we may not be able to accommodate partners as we would like other mothers to have priority.

We would appreciate you leaving us an email (office@breastfeeding.org.sg) or comment here if you are interested to attend, and the age of your child, to help us prepare for topics for discussion. Please also feel free to add in any specific breastfeeding topics you may be interested in.

So come share your stories, seek support and help create a breastfeeding culture. We hope to see you on Wednesday, the 23th of August from 11am-1pm at the Singapore Council of Women’s Organisation (SCWO) BMSG’s office, hurry, register now, spaces are limited to the first 10 mothers who sign up.
