There will be an optional pot-luck of snacks and camaraderie at 8:30 pm following the meeting.

PLEASE RSVP! As these meetings are held in my family home, please respond to lllc.gatineau@gmail.com to let me know whether or not you are coming!

LLLC welcomes your donations to allow us to provide all support services - from the phone line, to our library books, to training our volunteers, to providing meeting spaces. Donations can be made online on our Group page (look for the pink button!). You will be issued a tax receipt for any amount over $10 that you donate.

If you need breastfeeding help before the next meeting, please contact La Leche League any time:

  1. Call the Ottawa Chapter warm line 613-238-5919 and leave a message.

  2. Write by email to lllc.gatineau@gmail.com.

Please visit www.LLLC.ca for more details on how you can help us in our goal of providing up-to-date breastfeeding information and support to every family who wants to have breastfeeding support.

LLLC meetings - You are always welcome to attend LLLC meetings before and after you have had your baby. Bring your breastfeeding questions and concerns, talk about your joys and challenges or come and just listen. Babies and young children are always welcome, and some Groups include father/partners in some or all of their meetings. 

All La Leche League Canada Leaders are volunteers. They are experienced breastfeeding mothers who have been accredited to provide up-to-date breastfeeding information, encouragement and support.

For More Information: Contact a local La Leche League Leader in the Find a Group/Leader section.

If you have received help from La Leche League, we would appreciate your support in the form of a donation so we can continue to help others breastfeed. Thank you!
