Meetings

Anyone who is pregnant or breastfeeding their child(ren) are invited to attend our meetings. All ages and stages are welcome too – not just tiny babies or those with struggles. In fact, we encourage it! Mums and parents sharing their breastfeeding experiences is at the heart of LLL meetings ❤️.

What to expect:

As you arrive, you’ll be offered a warm drink and refreshments. We tend to sit in a circle and start with introductions, a group discussion about a particular aspect of breastfeeding, and then time for your questions. If you’re pregnant, you’re very welcome at our meetings! You might also like to attend our online antenatal course .
