La Leche League:
“Our Mission is to help mothers worldwide to breastfeed through mother-to-mother support, encouragement, information, and education, and to promote a better understanding of breastfeeding as an important element in the healthy development of the baby and mother.”
La Leche League suggests attending a meeting while you are still pregnant. I didn’t make it to a meeting until my son was a couple months old but it was very helpful.
