What is La Leche League (LLL)?

Our Mission is to help mothers worldwide to breastfeed through mother-to-mother support, encouragement, information, and education, and to promote a better understanding of breastfeeding as an important element in the healthy development of the baby and mother.

To learn more about La Leche League’s ideals and principles, please read our philosophy.

Accredited by La Leche League International, volunteer Leaders are experienced breastfeeding mothers who are familiar with research and current findings dealing with all aspects of nursing. We offer practical information and support to nursing mothers through telephone help, monthly meetings, and lending libraries of books on childbirth, breastfeeding, and related parenting topics.

All breastfeeding mothers and pregnant women interested in breastfeeding are welcome to attend our meetings or call our Leaders for breastfeeding help. Mothers can become a member of La Leche League and enjoy even more benefits.
