Welcome to La Leche League

La Leche League provides information and support to women interested in breastfeeding. A recent
New Beginnings article by Kaye Lowman describes why our discussion groups can be so rewarding.
For all that has changed in the last 50 years, one thing has remained constant: the need for mother-to-mother support is, as it always has been, the bedrock upon which a happy, confident nursing experience is built. Books are helpful, the Internet is accessible, research is conclusive, pamphlets and flyers and public service announcements help get the word out. But what enables a woman to joyfully provide her baby with the perfect nourishment from her own body is having another woman who has had the same experience travel along the path with her.
All women, especially those pregnant or nursing, are invited to join other mothers in our discussions. Babies are always welcome! Bring your questions and concerns about breastfeeding. An excellent lending library is available with books on childbirth, breastfeeding, parenting and nutrition.
Please call a Leader the night before to verify time, location, and for directions. See our calendar here.
