What We Do
Mother to Mother Support
Breastfeeding is a simple and natural process. While considering the care of the mother and child’s physician and other health care professionals, La Leche League recognizes the unique importance of one mother helping another mother to perceive the needs of her child and to learn the best means of fulfilling those needs. You may need support and information on the correct positioning of the baby at the breast, working and breastfeeding, avoiding problems, or overcoming any difficulties that may occur. Knowing other women who have breastfed their babies can be helpful and reassuring. Having accurate, up to date information is also important in meeting your breastfeeding goal. Being in touch with La Leche League can give you the network of support you need.
