Contrary to popular belief, breastfeeding does not always come easily or naturally to mother and baby. Yet, most every woman who wants to breast feed can successfully breast feed if she has support, guidance and the right tools to do so.
La Leche League International helps mothers worldwide to breastfeed through mother-to-mother support, encouragement, information, and education, and to promote a better understanding of breastfeeding as an important element in the healthy development of the baby and mother.
