La Leche League is an international, nonprofit, nonsectarian organization dedicated to providing education, information, support and encouragement to those interested in feeding their babies human milk. Whether you are breastfeeding, chestfeeding, feeding donor milk, or anywhere in between, we are here to support you.
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 mother.
The basic philosophy of La Leche League is summarized in the following statements:
The ideals and principles of mothering which are the foundation of LLLI beliefs are further developed in THE WOMANLY ART OF BREASTFEEDING, the most comprehensive handbook on breastfeeding and parenting ever published. It has provided needed answers to three generations of nursing mothers on every aspect of breastfeeding.
LLL Leaders in the group are volunteers and are accredited through La Leche League International. We provide help in person at our monthly meetings or weekly park days. Leaders also are available to help via phone, email, or Facebook. Please contact us, our support is always free!
