There are several Breastfeeding Coalitions in place across the province and like other breastfeeding support groups; we strive to provide the community with a better understanding of breastfeeding as an important element in a healthy development of baby and mother. We help parents everywhere by providing education, encouragement and mother to mother support.

Together we can continue to contribute to improve the health of Canadians by supporting women everywhere as they respond to the needs of their children.

If you are interested in either becoming a support person, or if you need support in breastfeeding please contact me (diane@ breastfeedwindsor.org -no spaces) and I will do all I can to connect you with someone that will be suited to you and your needs.

Sincerely,

Diane Pepin, Nicky Syed

Windsor and Essex County area La Leche League Canada Meetings and Leaders



All La Leche League Canada Leaders are volunteers. They are experienced breastfeeding mothers who are trained to provide up-to-date breastfeeding information, encouragement, and support.
All women interested in breastfeeding are welcome to attend monthly Group meetings. Anytime is a good time to come to a La Leche League meeting: when pregnant, with a new baby or when considering weaning.

La Leche League Canada (LLLC)

is a national charitable organization that is affiliated with La Leche League International (LLLI). LLLC provides education, information, support and encouragement to women who want to breastfeed
While a series of four meetings with the following topics is rotated throughout the year, the specific content varies significantly depending on the current focus and the needs of those present.

Meeting 1: The Advantages of Breastfeeding to Mother and Baby
Meeting 2: Baby Arrives: The Family and the Breastfed Baby
Meeting 3: The Art of Breastfeeding and Avoiding Difficulties
Meeting 4: Nutrition and Weaning


For More Information: Contact a local La Leche League Leader for breastfeeding information or for more information about meetings.
As Leaders are volunteers answering calls from their homes, please call during daytime/early evening hours. They will make every effort to return your call in a timely manner. If you do not hear back from a Leader within twenty four hours please contact our breastfeeding referral service for another Leader near you.
For EMERGENCY situations please contact a health care provider in your community.

I hope that all women that are pregnant, or have a new baby will either contact a LLL leader, or come to a meeting and get current information, and FABULOUS support on breastfeeding.
The meetings are fun, and it is so wonderful to get together once a month with other moms that are trying to feed their babies naturally.
Oh, and even if you are not nursing, if you want to nurse the next time, then come out to a meeting, and get armed with power and accurate information.
