Forum and Personal Safety

Ever feel that you would like to be able to ask some questions and have a
chat without feeling that you have to defend your choice to do things the
way you feel comfortable? Discuss your desires, aims and ask your questions
of other Mums here. If you need medical advice, please ask your medical
adviser, we aren't qualified to help you in that department and our Code of
Ethics for ABA means we do not discuss Health Professionals or Hospitals by
name. (Everyone's experiences are different and what may not agree with one
person, may be totally agreeable to another.)

Forum and Personal Safety
Please remember that this forum is very public and anyone, anywhere in the world, can read it. For this reason you should be mindful of the personal details you post publicly on the forum itself, or provide privately by PM/Email to others you have met here.

Think over anything you are about to post - does it contain any identifying details about you or your family and friends? – This includes providing your email address to others if it gives your first and surnames.

Would you be happy if a stranger came up to you in the street and knew your name and your children’s names and ages because they recognised you from your posts? If not, then please think twice about providing names, ages and especially photos of your children. Think again before giving details of your location. Someone reading the forum may only need to read a few of your posts to gather enough information about you to know exactly where you live.

We allow links to family websites in your profile, but think carefully before you include such a link. Would someone be able to identify where you lived, where your children go to school or when you will be on holidays after a visit to your site? If so, it is probably not wise to provide a link on a public forum such as this.

Sadly the world we live in is not full of nice people; there are some undesirables out there. We need to be aware of this and be cautious.

The Australian Breastfeeding Association is not responsible in any way for details given out by people on this forum, everyone posts at their own risk
