Meetings

LLL Edinburgh meets three times a month:

Our last meeting at the Pregnancy and Parents Centre will be in August 2019.

From August 2019, our Friday meeting will be:

  • the first Friday of the month at the Cornerstone Centre at St John’s (church at the corner of Princes Street and Lothian Road)

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.
