All women who have an interest in breastfeeding are invited to attend LLL meetings. All mothers and their babies are accepted with open arms at meetings. Accredited LLL Leaders guide mother-to-mother sharing. Each mother is encouraged to take from La Leche League meetings what seems sensible and helpful to her.

La Leche League is a nonprofit organization and not affiliated with any meeting location.
We would like to thank all the locations for their generous contribution of a meeting space
*In order to respect the personal and religious privacies of mothers the Women's Only meeting is closed to men. In order to better serve our community, the Fathers Welcome meeting allows dads to attend with their families.
No two meetings are exactly alike, since we are all growing in our understanding of child development, mothering and family life. As we share our knowledge of mothering through breastfeeding, we can all learn and support each other during this important time in the lives of our families.
Pregnant women may find it helpful to attend monthly meetings before the baby is due and/or to obtain a copy of our manual, THE WOMANLY ART OF BREASTFEEDING.
Come visit one of our meetings and check out a book on breastfeeding or parenting. Our manual, THE WOMANLY ART OF BREASTFEEDING is available to check out.
Because our meetings are attended by pregnant women and newborns, we ask that you avoid bringing contagiously ill children to meetings. If illness prevents you from attending, you can still receive support and information by calling a Leader on the phone. You may also call with questions between meetings.
