La Leche League Edinburgh are here to support you with your breastfeeding journey (from pregnancy to weaning and beyond!).

What happens at an LLL meeting? scroll down to read more, we’d love to meet you!

As always LLL meetings are FREE, but we rely on membership and donations to continue. Donations can be made at https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/LLLE.

We continue to be available for one-on-one support.

LLL Leaders are internationally accredited breastfeeding counsellors. We are all volunteers and offer support to you while juggling their own family lives, which is increasingly tricky! We will keep the website and Facebook page updated (https://www.facebook.com/LLLEdinburgh).

Come and join us at our next meeting! La Leche League is for those who:

- Are expecting a baby and want to know more about breastfeeding (including chestfeeding, combination feeding, exclusively pumping, however your journey looks for you)
- Are already breastfeeding and want help with challenges
- Would like information on starting solids or weaning (the end of breastfeeding)
- Want to meet others who are breastfeeding to share support and experiences (newborns, toddlers, through pregnancies and beyond)
- Are interested in reading more about breastfeeding, birth and parenting
- Are health professionals interested in learning more about breastfeeding
- Want to help others who are breastfeeding

What to expect at meetings...

LLL Edinburgh meets every Friday online on Zoom.

Our meetings welcome those that have experience of breastfeeding (however that might look for you: including chestfeeding, exclusively pumping, combination feeding…from one feed to years of breastfeeding) or are pregnant.

All meetings are lead by an LLL Leader (internationally accredited breastfeeding counsellor) who is a parent, just like you, that has breastfed their baby as well as trained and accredited with La Leche League International.

At every meeting we start with a warm drink and a snack–now in the comfort of our own home until face-to-face meetings resume. We have a group chat on different topics, sharing experiences of breastfeeding and common issues. There is time to speak with each other and an LLL Leader.

We have a library and leaflets, which can be posted out or picked up using social-distancing, just get in touch to arrange. There is no cost to come to any of our meetings or use our resources.

LLL believes that you know your own babies best. We want you to feel free to express your own ideas and experiences and to take from meetings the ideas that work for you and your family. We are here to help you meet your breastfeeding goals.

You are welcome to keep coming to meetings for as many months (or years!) as you wish.

All meetings make time for your questions; if you have a question, please ask!
