Event description

Description

Join other nursing and human milk feeding families the second Thursday of every month from 9:45-11:15am for a FREE La Leche League support meeting. This parent-to-parent meeting is for nursing/pumping families, or those that plan to breastfeed, chestfeed or pump. Your little ones and support people are also welcome to attend. There is no set topic, no purchases required, and no RSVP needed, so come with questions or just to hang out with other like-minded families. We can’t wait to see you!


La Leche League helps families by:

  • Providing free meetings led by volunteer Leaders who are experienced with human milk feeding and accredited through La Leche League International.
  • Offering support between meetings by phone, email, text, and even through social media.
  • Helping parents learn about the ages and stages of breastfeeding.
  • Creating a community of support by bringing nursing families together.
  • Doing all of this completely free of charge. We do sell memberships to offset the cost of running our groups and leading meetings, but rest assured, payment is never required to receive help or community.
La Leche League Leaders are:
  • Parents who have personal experience in breastfeeding, chestfeeding, and/or pumping
  • Fully trained and accredited by La Leche League International
  • Able to help with all aspects of chest/breastfeeding
  • Volunteers who care about you, your baby, and your family.
What are meetings like?
  • LLL meetings can be viewed as a buffet of ideas. Each parent is welcome to take what works for them and their family and leave the rest behind.
  • A typical LLL meeting allows plenty of time for questions, and parent-to-parent sharing in a warm and supportive atmosphere.
  • We are here to help support you as you determine, work toward, and even surpass your nursing goals.
  • There is no right or wrong way to be a parent, and you can come to meetings whether you nurse for 2 days, 2 years, supplement, pump, combo feed etc.
