Covid-19 Update

We at LLL Edinburgh are working hard to keep supporting mothers with their breastfeeding journeys while maintaining social distancing. To bring some regular stability we are trialling two regular weekly online meetings on Fridays at 10:30 and 20:00. All face-to-face meetings are suspended until further notice.

We are also available for one-on-one support and can be contacted via Facebook Messenger, via hello@llledinburgh.co.uk, or by phoning Eden (0131 336 2641), Sarah (07842 078527), or Karla (07702 599503).

There are lots of fantastic articles on many breastfeeding topics on the LLLGB website.

This week’s meetings:

LLL Leaders are all volunteers and offer support to you while juggling their own family lives, which is increasingly tricky! We will keep the website and Facebook page updated if there are any changes in what we can offer families in Edinburgh.

Wishing everyone good health and LLLove,
Eden, Karla, Sarah, Thea, and Miriam (LLL Edinburgh Leaders)

Welcome

Come and join us at our next meeting! La Leche League is for those who:

  • …are already breastfeeding and want help with challenges
  • …would like information on starting solids or weaning

  • …are health professionals interested in learning more about breastfeeding
  • …want to help other breastfeeding mothers

Meetings

PLEASE NOTE: All face-to-face meetings have been suspended due to Covid-19. Please see the top of this page for information about remote meetings.

LLL Edinburgh meets three times a month:

Our meetings welcome women that are interested in breastfeeding, pregnant or with children of any age.

All meetings are lead by an LLL Leader (breastfeeding counsellor) who is a mum, just like you, that has breastfed their baby as well as trained and accredited with La Leche League International.

Before we start we have a cup of tea and some (delicious!) home baking. We have a chat sharing experiences of breastfeeding and common issues. There is time to speak with other mums and an LLL Leader. You may like to look through our library and leaflets. There is no cost to come to any of our meetings or use our resources.

LLL believes that mothers know their own babies best. We want you to feel free to express your own ideas and experiences and to take from meetings the ideas that work for you and your family.

You are welcome to keep coming to meetings for as many months (or years!) as you wish.

All meetings make time for mothers’ questions; if you have a question, please ask!

Help between meetings

Do you need help with breastfeeding between meetings? You can:

  • Ring a local leader for support (Your local Leaders are volunteers so may not always be able to answer their personal phone):
    • Eden 0131 336 2641 or Sarah 07842 078527
  • Call our UK Helpline: 0345 120 2918 (8am-11pm with voicemail outwith these hours)
  • Check out the fantastic information on our website: laleche.org.uk

The La Leche League GB website is full of articles and information. You can even chat online if a Leader is available, or there is a contact form for someone to get back to you.
