You (and your family) are Welcome at any stage of Your Unique Nursing Journey-- Pregnant, Nursing, Weaning, & Beyond:
Attending La Leche League meetings will help you to learn about breastfeeding. At meetings we share our questions and concerns as well as the benefits and joys of breastfeeding, and mothering through breastfeeding.
La Leche League Leaders are experienced mothers and parents who have breastfed their own babies and are trained and accredited by La Leche League International to help with all aspects of breastfeeding.
Several of Our accredited Local La Leche League Leaders are available for free phone support whenever you have breastfeeding questions or concerns, 24 hrs a day. (If you don't get us right away, feel free to keep calling down the list until you get one of us, and feel free to leave a message so we can return your call ASAP)
Meetings, and telephone support from our accredited volunteer La Leche League Leaders, are provided FREE of charge. If you appreciate the work we do and would like to help us to continue to provide this service to others, we welcome you to become a member of our local group. Membership in La Leche League is $40 per year. You are always welcome to attend meetings or call a Leader for support regardless of membership status.
