Become an LLL Lynchburg Member!

It's so lovely to find a group of moms that support your mothering and you and your child's breastfeeding journey. La Leche League is a group of trained mothers of breastfed children that are available to help moms when they encounter difficulties or when they are in need of solid information. We do this over the phone and in email. La Leche League also holds monthly meetings, and it is through these meetings that moms receive answers, but they also receive support from Leaders and other attending mothers.

Breastfeeding moms don't always have technical questions. I'd argue that many moms just need to know that what they are experiencing (the tough parts) are temporary, that they aren't the first moms to be utterly exhausted. That all of us, at one point or another, wonder when the heck this weaning is actually going to happen. Some moms find their tribe in La Leche League.

Leaders are volunteers. We try not to spend our own money on incidentals, and certainly not on Leadership dues, but it can be expensive. Besides the dues, we have quite a few mothers pursuing leadership, which is so very exciting, but also an added expense. While we do hold fundraisers, most often in the form of profit-shares, you can help bolster our Treasury by becoming an LLL Lynchburg member. The cost is $30. The money ensures that our group remains strong and a resource to mothers in our area that need and desire our support.

If you have been touched by our local group, please consider becoming a member. We accept cash and checks made out to LLL Lynchburg. Please contact Terese, at terese118@gmail.com with any questions, or for more information. Thank you for consideration!
