"Peer support really works!"

Parents tell us, and the research proves, that more babies are breastfed exclusively for six months, as recommended by Health Canada and the Canadian Pediatric Society, when they receive the kind of support that La Leche League Canada offers. Special circumstances or the normal course of breastfeeding -- we can help your clients! (see video here)

"If it weren't for LLLC,

I probably wouldn't be breastfeeding my baby now!"

Families you work with can find peer support for breastfeeding in your community by visiting the Find a Group section of this website or by calling our toll-free Breastfeeding Referral Line: 1-800-665-4324. Trained La Leche League Canada volunteers offer support by telephone, e-mail, one-on-one and in a group setting. 

For more information about the training our volunteers receive and the experience required before they are accredited as La Leche League Canada Leaders, see the Become a Leader section.
