La Leche League in the Metro East
Our mission is to help mothers worldwide to breastfeed through mother-to-mother support, encouragement, information, and education and to promote a better understanding of breastfeeding as an important element in the healthy development of the baby and the mother.

* Breastfeeding During Illness
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.
Due to CDC Guidelines we are unable to have in person meetings.
Below is a link to a calendar of Online Meetings:
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.
Leaders are Volunteers. Please leave a message if you reach an answering machine.

About La Leche League:
La Leche League is a nonprofit, nonsectarian organization dedicated to providing information, encouragement and support to women who wish to breastfeed their babies. Our meetings are led by mothers who have happily and successfully breastfed their own children and have subsequently been accredited by La Leche League International.
