La Leche League is an international, nonprofit, nonsectarian organization dedicated to providing support, encouragement, information, and education to women who want to breastfeed. Having begun in 1956 as a group of just seven friends who wanted to support each other in their breastfeeding journeys, LLLI now makes up a global community that serves 65 countries. LLL Leaders offer up-to-date, practical information and mother-to- mother support for pregnant and nursing mothers through monthly meetings, telephone help, and extensive lending libraries.
All breastfeeding mothers and mothers-to-be interested in breastfeeding are welcome to come to our meetings or call one of our Leaders for breastfeeding help or information. Babies are always welcome at our meetings.
La Leche League Leaders are experienced mothers who have breastfed their own babies and who have been trained and accredited by La Leche League International to help mothers and mothers-to-be with all aspects of breastfeeding. They are available by phone whenever you have breastfeeding questions or concerns.
