What is La Leche League?

The Mission of La Leche League 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.

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 breastfeeding. We offer practical information and support to families through telephone, text, or email help; monthly meetings; and lending libraries of books on childbirth, breastfeeding, and related parenting topics.
