La Leche League of India

Print Friendly

Hello Ladies,

La Leche League is an International organization supporting breastfeeding. They have assigned leaders all over the world to support women who are breastfeeding or going to start this journey. I too have gone through a phase where I totally wanted to give up because of sore breasts.

With a lot of hesitation I called Kavitha a La Leche League leader who helped me with her support. Its very sad that we have very few lactation consultants in India. But the La Leche League leaders are doing a fabulous job. Below is a write up of La Leche League from their website here

La Leche League is an international, nonprofit, nonsectarian organization dedicated to providing education, information, support, and encouragement to women who want to breastfeed. La Leche League of India offers support and information through:

  • Online Mother to mother support group
  • Bi-Monthly All India Conference Calls
  • Monthly meetings
  • Telephone help from experienced leaders
  • Lending library with books on childbirth, breastfeeding, parenting and related subjects


Below is the contact numbers of the leaders.

La Leche League Leaders are experienced mothers who are accredited by La Leche League International to help mothers and mothers-to-be with all aspects of breastfeeding.

    Oh do they have a leader in Bangalore?? I thought they don’t have a leader in Bangalore. I contacted Yasmin through FB and waiting for her response. I will try contacting Kavitha for an interview with us. We should surely work with them.. Jaish

    Hey jaish, LLL is a great initiative, just that it needs more publicity especially in the BPL group. I had read Kavita”s interview in Mother & Baby magazine maybe some 3-4 years ago and had contacted their Blore rep for details on joining them. But the response from them was not very encouraging which is why I didnt take it up further.
    It will be very good if you are able to bring about a change by joining hands with them!
