Fall 2016 Circle Gatherings FREE Babies and Children always welcome

La Leche League is a nonprofit, non-governmental, and non-sectarian organization.  Our Mission is to help mothers worldwide to breastfeed through mother-to-mother support, encouragement, information, and education, and to promote a better understanding of breastfeeding as an important element in the healthy development of the baby and mother.

We have free and relaxed circle gatherings.  Come to be supported or share support.  Our philosophy is based on parents helping one another.  Starting with good information and making our own choices that work best for our families.

Our motto is “take what works and leave the rest”.  
Babies and children are always welcome.   Volunteer Leaders are trained and accredited.
