Our monthly meetings vary between open discussion style and topic meetings with variations based on the LLL Series Meetings of: Advantages of Breastfeeding, Welcoming a New Baby, Breastfeeding Difficulties, and Nutrition and Weaning.
Leaders can be contacted through Facebook, email, or over the phone for personal support in addition to our monthly support group meetings. All our meetings and support are free. Optional memberships are available which help support our group. Meetings are open to all parents, caregivers, and support persons who would like to learn more or need support with breastfeeding/breastmilk feeding.
La Leche League’s 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. La Leche League is an international, nonprofit, nonsectarian organization dedicated to providing education, information, support, and encouragement to parents who want to breastfeed. LLLI is committed to serving everyone inclusive of race, ethnicity, religion, sex, national origin, ancestry, age, marital status, physical or mental ability, socio-economic status, political views, gender identity, sexual orientation, family structure, or other protected status.
