La Leche League of Roseville, Minnesota
La Leche League of Roseville warmly welcomes any person interested in learning about breastfeeding or chestfeeding, including expectant parents. Babies are also always welcome, as are toddlers who might find separation from their parent difficult. Our group also welcomes a partner or other support person to attend, too. Come with your own questions and stay to explore a wide variety of breastfeeding topics with us.
We meet regularly on the first Thursday of every month, with the possible exception of July due to the holiday. Please contact a Leader for more information.
A series of four meetings over four months covers the following general topics:
- Advantages to Breastfeeding
- The New Baby Arrives
- The Art of Avoiding Difficulties
- Nutrition and Weaning
Because there are many subtopics under these headings, we try to creatively present different angles and new information as we cycle through our series during the course of a year.
The monthly discussion is followed by an open question and answer time. Many mothers find this part of our meeting very helpful.
We also encourage mothers with pumping questions to visit our meetings. Though many breastfeeding mothers rarely have a need to express milk, among the regular attendees of our group are mothers who routinely pump. These women are able to offer support and encouragement to new mothers transitioning back to work after a maternity leave.
We hope to see you at one of our meetings!
La Leche League Leaders are experienced mothers who have breastfed their own babies and who have been trained and accredited by La Leche League International to help mothers and mothers-to-be with all aspects of breastfeeding. They are available by phone whenever you have breastfeeding questions or concerns.
