La Leche League International:
La Leche League of Northern California and Hawaii:
“All women interested in breastfeeding are encouraged to attend group meetings regardless of membership status. Babies are always welcome.”
“All women interested in breastfeeding are encouraged to attend local group meetings. Each meeting focuses on a specific breastfeeding topic such as:
• The Advantages of Breastfeeding
• The Art of Breastfeeding and Overcoming Difficulties
• Nutrition, Starting Solids, and Weaning
In addition to discussion around a specific topic, everyone is invited to share their current breastfeeding issues and to seek information and encouragement from other attendees and the group leaders.
If you are looking for breastfeeding classes, lactation support, or just want to meet up with other nursing mothers, you will find information and support at LLL meetings.”
