La Leche League is an international, nonprofit, nonsectarian organization dedicated to providing support, encouragement, information, and education to women who want to breastfeed.

La Leche League of Western Pennsylvania was established in 1980 for the purpose of promoting, protecting and supporting breastfeeding in our Area and beyond.

Today, it is comprised of 21 Groups and more than 70 accredited leaders within Western Pennsylvania and Northern West Virginia.

La Leche League Groups offer sets of four meetings in a series covering a wide range of topics addressing the practical, emotional and physical aspects of parenting a breastfed baby. La Leche League leaders are specially trained and accredited volunteers who have had breastfeeding experience and who are available by phone and at Group meetings.

For more breastfeeding help and information please visit LLLILLL USA, and the LLL Alliance for Breastfeeding Education.
