|La Leche League of Northern California and Hawaii
Helping breastfeeding mothers through mother-to-mother support, encouragement, information, and education
La Leche League of Northern Sac, California
When: 10 a.m. on the 1st Thursday of the month
Any woman who is interested in breastfeeding is welcome at all meetings, as are babies and young children. The ideal time to begin attending is during pregnancy, because the information received in advance may prove vital to a mother when her baby arrives. Pregnant women may find it helpful to attend a Series of four monthly meetings before the baby is due and obtain a copy of the LLL manual, THE WOMANLY ART OF BREASTFEEDING (often available for purchase at meetings).
Breastfeeding is a simple and natural process, but you may need support and information on the correct positioning of the baby at the breast, working and breastfeeding, avoiding problems, and overcoming any difficulties that may occur. Mother to mother support is the heart of La Leche League, and attending LLL meetings can help you learn about breastfeeding from other nursing mothers. At these monthly meetings, mothers share not only their questions and concerns but also the benefits and joys of breastfeeding. Being in touch with La Leche League can give you the support you need.
Meetings are free, led by accredited La Leche League Leaders, who are experienced breastfeeding moms that volunteer to give breastfeeding support. Meetings last about an hour and a half. We understand your first priority is to your baby/children and other children, so it is OK to arrive late or leave early if you need to. After the more formal part of the meeting, there will be time to visit informally and browse our extensive and FREE lending library of pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding and parenting books.
The La Leche League of Northern California and Hawaii's website contains more information on what to expect at a group meeting.
La Leche League Leaders are experienced mothers who have breastfed their own babies and who have been trained and accredited by La Leche League International to help mothers and mothers-to-be with all aspects of breastfeeding. If you would like breastfeeding help, please contact a La Leche League leader in your community.Membership Information
