La Leche League meetings emphasize the joys of breastfeeding while they inform and encourage mothers who wish to nurse their babies. Mother-to-mother support is at the heart of La Leche League: getting to know other women who have breastfed their babies can be helpful and reassuring. It is also important to have accurate, up-to-date information. La Leche League Leaders guide discussion at meetings and answer questions from the group or individually. All mothers and mothers-to-be are welcome. Babies and children are welcome too!
Discussion topics include:
- Advantages of Breastfeeding for Mother, Baby, and Family
- Preparing for Baby’s Birth and Baby’s First Weeks
- Avoiding and Overcoming Difficulties: Questions Mothers Ask
- Nutrition, Weaning and Changes as Baby Grows
La Leche League Leaders are experienced mothers who have breastfed their own babies and who have been trained and accredited by La Leche League International to help mothers and mothers-to-be with all aspects of breastfeeding. They are available by phone whenever you have breastfeeding questions or concerns.
