NOTES: 

La Leche League Canada Oakville Group provides mother to mother support to those who are pregnant or nursing in any capacity. Nursing is not always easy and can come with challenges along the way. Whether you are exclusively nursing at the breast, expressing milk and using alternative feeding methods, supplementing, or weaning, we are here to support you and help you through your journey.

Everyone is welcome at our gatherings, including babies and children.  There is no charge or enrollment, just come by and enjoy a snack and conversation with other moms.  A toonie donation is appreciated but not required.

We usually start off the gathering with introductions and some discussion on a specific topic. We then open the floor to those would like to ask questions or seek support.

We meet at the Oakville Parent-Child Centre, North Service Road – Satellite location.  The meeting room has comfortable seating, a play area with toys, and access to a washroom and baby-changing facilities. Please refer to the attached document below for a map and interior/exterior photos.  This location is fully accessible, has free parking, and is close to stops for buses 10 and 18.  Please note that due to allergy concerns, this is a nut-free zone so you are welcome to bring nut-free snacks only.

LLLC meetings - You are always welcome to attend LLLC meetings before and after you have welcomed your baby. Bring your breastfeeding/chestfeeding 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 and support persons in some or all of their meetings. 
 
All La Leche League Canada Leaders are volunteers. They are experienced breastfeeding/chestfeeding parents who have been accredited to provide up-to-date breastfeeding/chestfeeding 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!
