La Leche League Leaders

Who are La Leche League Leaders?

La Leche League Leader volunteers are experienced breastfeeding mothers accredited by La Leche League International. Leaders know the importance of one mother helping another to recognize and understand the needs of her child and to find the best means of fulfilling those needs. Leaders provide information and support so that each mother can make the decisions which are best for her family. What is the best way to meet with a Leader?
