Leaders accredited by La Leche League International are available around the world to help mothers who wish to breastfeed their babies.
First, try the Index of La Leche League Groups, which will link you to an LLL Group with a Web page near you, if there is one. There are now more than 600 pages linked to this index, many of which cover multiple LLL Groups. All 50 US states and many other countries have information on the Web now. Any Leader listed on a Group Web page of a state within the US will have a directory of Leaders in her state, so she will be able to help you find a local Group or Leader.
Look in your local telephone directory. Many La Leche League Groups have listings in the white or yellow pages. Some are also listed in the free "blue" pages for nonprofit organizations, as well. If there is no listing under "La Leche League," look under headings labeled "breastfeeding" or "lactation." In some places La Leche League will be listed under "community resources" or "women's health."
Call your pediatrician or health clinic. Health care providers often have a file of La Leche League Leader names. Your local library may also have a listing.
If there is no Group near you in our Group Web listings and you can't find the information locally, pick up your telephone and dial 1-800-LALECHE (US). In Canada, telephone 1-800-665-4324, or (514) LA-LECHE for a French-speaking Leader.
