Why Become a Friend of La Leche League?

A World Breastfeeding Week Special

Join or renew your membership with Friends of La Leche League during World Breastfeeding Week, August 1 - 7, and receive our new logo pin! The pin is being made now and will be mailed to you in September. It's from the same company that makes our beautiful Cloisonné Leader recognition pins. You'll be the first to have the pin, hot off the presses!

Membership Survey Results

In October 2017, Friends of La Leche League conducted two separate online surveys to gather feedback about our programs and services. The summarized survey results can be viewed on our website here. The findings from the survey were discussed by the Friends Board at our annual meeting and form the basis for several program changes implemented in 2018. We thank everyone who completed the survey and always welcome members’ input.

*********
Joining Friends of La Leche League is a great way to stay in touch with LLL Leaders who have been part of your life.
–Marian Tompson, LLL Co-Founder

Time and again I am impressed by all that the Friends do to keep us together. We need those links as much now as we did when a new baby arrived.

–Mary Ann Cahill, LLL Co-Founder

I saw Gail last week and she inspired me to join. I was a Leader for 20 years and my Mom was a Leader before me—so LLL is a deep and loving part of me. And I plan for LLL to be there for my daughter!

–Eve Dunaway, new member
