Welcome to La Leche League

of Madison Area Chapter

Read below for our mission statement and group information.  If you need more immediate help, call (608) 827-5530 or email: lllmadisonchapter AT gmail DOT com or call a Leader, phone numbers listed below.

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 printable calendar here.

  1. Do you need to be a member to come to a meeting? Can I come to see what it’s like before joining?

    1. laurdsed Says:

      La Leche League groups are always free for mothers to attend. If you feel you’ve been helped, membership is always appreciated. Hope you can attend a group soon!


  2. Due in March and would love to come to a meeting to see if LLL is right for me. Can I drop in at a meeting to get info and meet everyone?

    1. laurdsed Says:

      Yes, of course! Pregnancy is an ideal time to come to our LLL groups for support, answering questions about breastfeeding, and meeting other breastfeeding mothers in the community.


  3. Do you know of any La Leche League groups in Racine WI or near there?

    1. laurdsed Says:

      Yes, there is! Here’s the page for LLL in Racine. http://www.llli.org/groups/@llli*group*racine
