La Leche League is an international, nonprofit, nonsectarian
organization dedicated to providing support, encouragement, information,
and education to women who want to breastfeed. La Leche League Leaders are
experienced breastfeeding mothers, accredited by La Leche League
International. They are familiar with research and current findings dealing
with all aspects of nursing and are trained to answer questions or concerns
you may have about breastfeeding. Leaders are volunteers who are available
for free telephone or e-mail counseling every day.
La Leche League of Gainesville will hold two meetings a month:
- 2nd Saturday of the month at 10am at Tower Road Library
- 4th Wednesday of the month at 10am at Millhopper Library
All women interested in learning about breastfeeding are welcome to attend
meetings or to call a Leader for breastfeeding help. Babies and children
are always welcome at our meetings.
