Virginia I have been an LLL Leader since March of 2006. I have lived in Tulsa all my life (except for four years in Stillwater attending OSU) and plan to raise my family here. I have three girls all two years apart and am married to my best friend. I love La Leche League because of the women I have met there and the ideas that have been introduced to me. It has made me the mother I am today. I have had relatively easy nursing experiences but understand the challenges of being a new mother and having children close in age. Specialties include: Nursing while pregnant Tandem nursing Taking children to work Home visits Nursing and exercise 918-231-8875 (call or text) firstname.lastname@example.org
Kate I started attending LLL meetings when I was pregnant with my oldest in 2003. I now have three children, who have all been breastfed. I have been a Leader since spring of 2006. I became a Leader in Charleston, SC, and moved to Tulsa in 2007. I plugged into the LLL Group here and joined some amazing Leaders in helping other mothers nurse their babies! Specialties include: Nursing while pregnant Tandem nursing Night time nursing and weaning Toddler nursing Nursing and co-sleeping Gentle discipline 918-504-8394 email@example.com
Ruth I started going to La Leche League meetings when I was fourmonths pregnant with my first child and found out that a friend of a friend was a La Leche League Leader. Her third child was born just two weeks before my first, so her confidence in her body and her baby really rubbed off on me, and I got to see how different healthy kids the same age can be. Since that time in 1985, I've belonged to seven La Leche League Groups in four states. Resourceful, compassionate La Leche League mothers helped me out when my first husband died while I was pregnant with my third son. Four years later, I married a very brave guy who decided inheriting three boys and having a baby would be an interesting adventure. These days he likes to embarrass our teenage daughter (and hopefully influence her friends' future mothering choices) by wearing breastfeeding promotion T-shirts to her activities. The whole family is glad that I give new mothers the same kind of mother-to-mother support that has led to health and happiness for us. Specialties include: Nutrition Milk supply issues Grief/depression and breastfeeding Working and breastfeeding Breastfeeding in different cultures How birth practices affect breastfeeding Lactivism (breastfeeding advocacy) 918-585-9114 firstname.lastname@example.org
