February 20 ZOOM virtual get-together:

You are invited to join our VIRTUAL meet-up on Tuesday, February 20, 10 am, Pacific Time. If you would like to attend this virtual meeting, PLEASE LET ME KNOW by EMAIL (preferably at least an hour before) so I can EMAIL OR MESSAGE YOU THE ZOOM 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 🙂

Our February 20 meeting is #2, Baby Arrives; the Family and the Breastfed Baby

Here's something you have probably all considered, "What did you do to prepare for breastfeeding - if you had a do-over, would you do anything differently?" Let's talk about that to start. From there you will find that 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.
