NOTES: 

During this time of being cautious about public gatherings due to COVID-19 our monthly Penticton/Summerland 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, 10 am to noon. See below for more details.

2020 Dates:  July 21, August 18, September 15, October 20, November 17, December 15.

JULY 21 ZOOM virtual get-together:

Please join our VIRTUAL confab on Tuesday, July 21, 10 am. If you would like to be on this call, PLEASE LET ME KNOW before Tuesday (and preferably at least an hour before) so I can email you the link. If you are already a member of our closed Facebook Group and/or are on the Group email list you will receive a notification with the meeting link through those means. Let me know if you have any questions. Bring all your breastfeeding and mothering related stories, challenges, triumphs, questions and concerns - we'll have lots to talk about. Looking forward to a great discussion - virtually!

General description of this LLLC virtual meeting

  • breastfeeding information and support for all pregnant and breastfeeding moms and babies
  • parenting partners welcome too
  • no such thing as late
  • from the comfort of your own home - come as you are!

This meeting topic is about challenges - how to avoid, how to overcome. Are there any particular breastfeeding challenges you are facing? Have you overcome a challenge that you would like to share about? The discussion is free-flowing and will incorporate WHATEVER ELSE you want to talk about.

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, 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.

Sandra Yates, LLLC Accredited Leader: 250-494-1894 sandra.yates@lllc.ca Connect anytime if you need more information about the get-together or if you have any questions about breastfeeding.
