During this time of being cautious about public gatherings due to COVID-19 our monthly Penticton/Summerland (BC) breastfeeding information and support get-together will be via ZOOM, rather than in an in-person meeting. It will be held, as usual, on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 10 am Pacific Time. See below for more details.

January 18 ZOOM virtual get-together:
Please join our VIRTUAL meet-up on Tuesday, January 18, 10 am, Pacific Time. If you would like to be on this call, PLEASE LET ME KNOW (preferably at least an hour before) so I can EMAIL OR MESSAGE YOU THE LINK. Let me know if you have any questions.
La Leche League offers support, encouragement and evidence-based information. Whether you are pregnant, breastfeeding, hand expressing, exclusively pumping, combination feeding, providing your own or donor milk for a child (or trying/hoping to do so), you are welcome at La Leche League.
LLL Leaders are volunteers who have nursed our own babies, and provide breastfeeding support in our communities by phone, text, email, social media and meetings / get-togethers (currently virtual). Expect a warm welcome, acceptance and non-judgmental support when you contact LLL Leaders or participate in LLL groups.
Bring all your breastfeeding and parenting questions, concerns, stories, challenges, and triumphs - we'll have lots to talk about. Looking forward to a great get-together - virtually!
If you can’t make it to a meeting, you can contact a Leader at any time. We'd love to hear from you 🙂
For our January meeting, Why Breastfeeding is Important, we'll start with any thoughts and questions you might have about "Why?" Then of course the conversation will take us wherever the interests of the participants want to go, no matter the concern or topic.
We'll help each other with information, share concerns, joys and tips, and enjoy each other's company. Come join us and connect with others who are interested in breastfeeding and parenting, just like you. You will find breastfeeding information, new ideas, questions to ponder, love, laughter and support. Your experience is so much more important to others than you might appreciate - exchanging thoughts and sharing your lived experience is one of the things that makes communicating with your peers such a valuable experience. Just being in conversation 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.
