La Leche League

www.llli.org/SouthAfrica
La Leche League South Africa is a voluntary organisation which provides information and support to women who want to breastfeed their babies.
La Leche League Leaders are experienced breastfeeding mothers, trained and accredited by LLL, who are happy to help other mothers with questions and concerns about breastfeeding.
This one-to-one approach is one of the most effective (and friendly!) way of getting the support you need.
It is important to notice that all our Leaders are mothers who volunteer their time and are therefore not always available.
