La Leche League PENTICTON: TUESDAY FEBRUARY 19 MORNING - CANCELLED ***Please note a change for February only*** Sandra will be out of town in February so THE IN-PERSON GET-TOGETHER for pregnant and breastfeeding moms IS CANCELLED. Instead, let's try an ONLINE MESSENGER VIDEO MEETING! Please Message me that you would like to participate so I can add you to my contact list. Please do that before Monday if possible as there can be delays in communication, especially since I will be in and out of internet coverage. ON-LINE MESSENGER VIDEO CHAT TUESDAY FEBRUARY 19 10-NOON. I will call everyone on my messenger participant list, starting at 10 am. (You must have an up-to-date version of messenger to participate.) I am excited to try this! Sincere apolgies to anyone who had decided this would be the month you would attend in person! I surely hope that you will come along to the get-together on March 19, 10-noon, 1475 Fairview Rd, Unit 137D (OK Doula office) Cannery Trade Centre.

SUMMERLAND: This meeting will ALSO be CANCELLED in February. We will resume with meetings at the Summerland Library on Tuesday, March 26, 6-8 PM.

BOTH GET-TOGETHERS: Feel free to attend both get-togethers - different people, different experiences! Bring all your breastfeeding questions, concerns, joys and tips. Come join us and connect with others who are interested in breastfeeding and parenting, just like you. You will find breastfeeding information, shared ideas, questions to ponder, love, humour and support. Your experience is so much more important to others than you might appreciate - sharing your thoughts, ideas and lived experience is one of the things that makes meeting your peers face-to-face work. Moms find that just being in the room with other breastfeeding moms pretty much guarantees you will pick up more than you thought possible.

LLLC gatherings are open to breastfeeding parents from all backgrounds, family structures, gender, and sexual orientations. Babies and parenting partners are always welcome. Pregnant mamas find it helpful to attend at least one get-together before the baby comes.


If you would like to receive monthly get-together reminders by email, please send an email to pentictonlllc@gmail.com and ask to be added to the email reminder list.  


Our local Facebook group is "Penticton/Summerland LLLC" and you are welcome to join. Here you will find announcements of local Group events, blog posts and other breastfeeding information - another way to keep tabs on what we are up to!


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!


To encourage, promote and provide breastfeeding, chest feeding and human milk feeding support and educational opportunities as an important contribution to the health of children, families and society
