Why join La Leche League?
We encourage you to become a member of La Leche League, although membership is not required to attend meetings or to receive breastfeeding help from a Leader.
Membership in La Leche League is currently $40 for one year. The membership fee helps to support your local Group and enables La Leche League International to continue its mission of providing information and encouragement for breastfeeding women around the world. Without contributions from our members, La Leche League would be unable to provide this vital mother-to-mother support.
