There are times when a breastfeeding mother needs support and encouragement from someone who has successfully breastfed her own baby. La Leche League Leaders are experienced breastfeeding mothers who have been trained and accredited by La Leche League International to help mothers and mothers-to-be with all aspects of breastfeeding.
All pregnant women and nursing mothers are invited to participate in our informal monthly meetings. Establishing a network of support in your decision to breastfeed your baby is an important element of successful breastfeeding.
Babies are always welcome at La Leche League meetings.
Our Philosophy: The basic philosophy of La Leche League is summarized in the following statements:
The ideals and principles of mothering which are the foundation of LLLI beliefs are further developed in The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding, the most comprehensive handbook on breastfeeding and parenting ever published. It has provided needed answers to three generations of nursing mothers on every aspect of breastfeeding.
La Leche League USA (LLL USA) is committed to diversity and inclusion. LLL USA strives to support all breastfeeding families regardless of race, ethnicity, creed, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, family structure, primary language, ability, or socio-economic status. La Leche League USA makes every effort to foster diversity among its Leaders so as to incorporate a wide variety of perspectives and responsible decision-making.
