Attending La Leche League Meetings can help you learn about breastfeeding from other nursing mothers. At these monthly meetings, mothers share not only their questions and concerns but also the benefits and joys of breastfeeding. Knowing other women who have breastfed their babies can be helpful and reassuring. It is also important to have accurate, up-to-date information.

Discussion topics include:

Advantages of Breastfeeding for Mother, Baby and the World
Preparing for Baby, Birth, and Baby's First Weeks
Avoiding and Overcoming Difficulties
Nutrition, Weaning and Changes as Baby Grows

Babies and children are always welcome.

About La Leche League
La Leche League is an international, nonprofit, nonsectarian organization dedicated to providing education, information, mother-to-mother support, and encouragement to women who want to breastfeed. 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 to call our Leaders for breastfeeding help.
