Our mission is to help mothers to breastfeed through mother-to-mother support, education, information, and encouragement and to promote a better understanding of breastfeeding as an important element in the healthy development of the baby and mother.

Our accredited La Leche League Leaders are experienced mothers who have been trained to provide information and support for breastfeeding. We can help over the phone, you can come along to our informal meetings, or ask a questions via email and on social media.

La Leche League has groups across the country. Groups hold regular informal discussion meetings for mothers and their babies, older children and support people are also welcome. Meetings are based on the importance of mother to mother support and cover a wide range of breastfeeding related topics. Please bring your questions, concerns and also your achievements and triumphs!
