Come join us for our La Leche League Virtual Meetings:
NEXT MEETING IS Saturday 12 September 2020 at 10 a.m.
What time? 7 p.m. on the third Wednesdays; 10 a.m. on first or second Saturdays. Changes will be made to Saturday meeting dates to avoid holidays.
Where are the meetings being held? While there is a risk of passing the virus that causes COVID-19 infections, La Leche League USA and La Leche League International require us to hold only virtual meetings unless we can meet outdoors and stay well distanced. Please contact a Leader or follow the link to our Facebook Group for meeting access.
Where's the info for getting on the meeting? Access info for virtual meetings will be announced on the Facebook Group (see link below), or contact Paula or Sandy at their emails to the left so we can send you the direct link for the meeting.
Anyone who is nursing or pregnant or who is interested in learning more about nursing, breastfeeding, or otherwise providing human milk for their baby is welcome (including your children) at every meeting.
We often post new research, nursing tips, or information for nursing in a crisis (such as pandemics or tornadoes!) on our Facebook Page. Our Facebook Group is like an online meeting; if you wish to join, follow the link above and send a join request to the Leaders. We will post meeting cancellation notices on our FB Page as early as possible.

AFTER THE RISK OF COVID-19 HAS PASSED, WE WILL RETURN TO HOLDING MEETINGS IN:
Rose Rock Room, 2nd floor, in the all-new Norman Public Library Central
The Rose Rock Room is the green glass-walled room to the right of the stairs and elevators on the second floor. We will bring toys for the children to share. We chat while our children play. Burning questions are always welcome, or just come to hang out with people who share your interest in breastfeeding!
Our face-to-face meetings offer a space for developing a network of friends with others who have similar values for nursing their babies and parenting and for sharing your concerns and joys. We will share information and tips about a variety of issues a nursing 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 nursing, and much more.
Leaders are trained and accredited by La Leche League International to provide individual support and help nursing families overcome many of the early challenges of nursing as well as those that may arise later along the nursing journey. Please keep in mind that only a Leader speaks for La Leche League. Leaders will always offer evidence-based information.
All others speak only from their own personal parenting experiences. 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.
