Hi everyone,

Just a quick update in case anyone is browsing this post - our Barrington group has moved to the Barrington Plunket Rooms, 120 Conway St (off Barrington St).
The groups are going really well - relaxed, friendly and a great bunch of mums. If you're a young parent in Christchurch and keen to meet other young mums, please join us. We welcome pregnant mamas, mums who are exclusively breastfeeding, mums who are mixed feeding, dads, whanau, friends and kids!
