Our discussion topic will continue to focus on nutrition issues for mother and baby and also weaning. Then we will go on to whatever else you want to talk about and of course learn some new things from each other along the way. Bring all your breastfeeding questions, concerns and joys. 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. All pregnant and breastfeeding mommas and their partners are welcome!

*We will trial The Summerland Library for the next few months to see how this venue works for us. We are very grateful to the library for the use of this space!

 

PENTICTON: MAY SERIES GET-TOGETHER TUESDAY, May 15, IN PENTICTON, 10 am to noon. The Concorde building Activity Room, 3235 Skaha Lake Rd, Penticton (Yes, it is an Assisted Living Residence! **See more info below.)

Our beginning discussion topic will focus on nutrition issues for mother and baby and also weaning. Then we will go on to whatever else you want to talk about and of course learn some new things from each other along the way. 

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. 

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.

LLLC gatherings are open to breastfeeding parents from all backgrounds, family structures, gender, and sexual orientations. Babies and parenting partners are always welcome.

Sandra Yates, LLLC Accredited Leader: 250-494-1894 sandrayates@telus.netPlease call, email or PM me if you need more information about the meeting or if you have any questions about breastfeeding. I will be happy to talk with you.

Please stop and say hello to the residents on your way in and out – they are really excited to see babies and young children in their environment, so please do go out of your way to engage with them - many of them look forward to seeing the babies arrive on Tuesdays!

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.

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 mother-to-mother breastfeeding support and educational opportunities as an important contribution to the health of children, families and society. Mothering through breastfeeding is the most natural and effective way of understanding and satisfying the needs of the baby.
