La Leche League of Cleveland County Families: THE MEETING 8/16/17 IS CANCELED.
If you need breastfeeding information or assistance, please use one of the following options to reach a Leader:
La Leche League of Cleveland County Families will generally hold two Series Meetings each month, weather and/or Leader & family wellness permitting. Anyone who is breastfeeding or pregnant or who is interested in learning more about breastfeeding is welcome (with children) at every meeting. Our Saturday meetings are open to the entire breastfeeding family.
Our face-to-face meetings offer a space for developing a network of friends with others who have similar values as to breastfeeding and parenting and for sharing your concerns and joys. We will share information and tips about a variety of issues a breastfeeding family may experience, including surviving the early postpartum weeks, managing milk supply and coping with latch issues, pumping, yeast infections (thrush), mastitis, tongue tie/lip tie, working and breastfeeding, and much more. Leaders are trained and accredited by La Leche League International to provide individual support and help breastfeeding families overcome many of the early challenges of breastfeeding as well as those that may arise later on the breastfeeding journey. While we often start a meeting with a particular topic as a conversation-starter, your questions are always welcome; we emphasize sharing and mutual support in an open discussion.
You can also find us on Facebook! We often post new research, breastfeeding tips, or information for breastfeeding in a crisis (such as tornadoes!) on our Facebook page. Our Facebook Group is like an online meeting; if you wish to join, follow the link below and send a join request to the Leaders.
We are very grateful to Gymboree of Norman and our other hostesses for providing us space in which to hold our meetings without charge! See our meeting info below or at:
