La Leche League of Fort Myers Florida

It is important to know that breastfeeding is a learned art and, like childbirth, is much easier with preparation, knowledge and encouragement.

Our meetings are informal discussions led monthly by women who have happily and successfully breastfed their own children and have subsequently been accredited by La Leche League International. The Meetings are open to any women interested in the art of breastfeeding. All children are welcome. We have many books about breastfeeding, parenting, childbirth and nutrition in our library for loan. Bring a healthy snack to share if you would like.
