We are a non-profit, volunteer, mother-run organization serving nursing mothers through free support in our community. Donations of any size are appreciated.

At it’s core, La Leche League was created to provided in-person and individualized free support for breastfeeding mothers provided by other trained volunteer breastfeeding mothers.   This focus has not changed over the more than 30 years La Leche League has been serving Evanston, Wilmette and the North Shore Communities.  

Though mothers are increasingly turning toward online sources for breastfeeding support, there is no replacement for the personalized and face-to-face encouragement, information, and support provided in La Leche League Meetings and contacts.   Each breastfeeding relationship is unique, so personalized care is essential.     

Many mothers call us, email us, or come to our group looking for a type of care found no where else.  Because our support is free, mothers can feel comfortable that they can get continued support over time, not just a one-time visit.  Most mothers would find it financially impossible or unrealistic to have this kind of continued support through their breastfeeding journey from a paid professional.

Mothers are also feeling more isolated than ever in their parenting.  In our groups they can connect with a community of like-minded families who support similar parenting choices and may find lifelong friends.

Through all these together, we have often heard that our support has made the difference of whether a family continues to breastfeed as they had hoped to or just given up.
