La Leche League

"La Leche League Canada is a registered non profit that provides mother-to-mother/parent-to-parent/peer support for pregnant women, new parents and beyond. We are parents like you who have breastfed or chestfed our own children and now volunteer to support others to reach their goals. As volunteer Leaders we are accredited within La Leche League Canada after a detailed training program and have access to current scientific and legal information to help support others.

Connection and respect are at the heart of what we do and we strive to ensure that all families are welcomed and reflected in every aspect of La Leche League Canada, including in our volunteer Leaders. We believe that nobody knows your baby or family better than you and that everyone deserves the right circle of support in which to raise their children.

La Leche League Canada is a national registered Canadian charity and part of a global organisation, La Leche League International, LLLC has been supporting families in Canada for over fifty years."(Source: LLLC.ca)
