Moms or moms-to-be or any woman interested in learning about breastfeeding are welcome at all regular meetings. Dads are welcome to the pumping meeting and any social or playdate. You can come for questions, come to meet like minded families or come because things are going great and you want to support other moms!

Celebration and Potluck Thanks!

The Leaders of La Leche League of Charleston would like to thank everyone who came out on Saturday. We had such a nice gathering of family and friends and children! We were also able to make the money needed for paying all our bills and buying new supplies and informational sheets. The food was delicious and everyone had a lot of fun!
