Breastfeeding Q&A is an online community group set up for mother-to-mother support, enabling and empowering mums in the UAE to meet their breastfeeding goals in their particular situations.
Members have widely differing circumstances, but the group is there to encourage and support each mother to make decisions which are right for her, and to achieve her own breastfeeding goals.
Mums can receive information and support at any time from other members or our team of volunteers.
