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.
Even at a playgroup, you're welcome to share breastfeeding concerns. If a Leader is unable to join the playgroup, please keep in mind that only a Leader speaks for La Leche League and will always offer evidence-based information; all others speak only from their own personal experiences.
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.
