La Leche League of Shanghai, China
La Leche League is an international, nonprofit, nonsectarian organization dedicated to providing education, information, support, and encouragement to women who want to breastfeed.
Our monthly series meetings offer a special opportunity for expecting and nursing mothers to learn more about breastfeeding, ask questions and share with others in either English or Chinese.
Puxi- English Meetings are on the third Thursdays of the month from 10 am -12 pm at Baby International Gubei, 2nd Floor, Huangjingcheng Pedestrian Street No. 623 (located along Huangjincheng Pedestrian Street close to Yin Zhu Lu between Hong Bao Shi Lu and Lan Bao Shi Lu) Phone 6236-2363
Pudong Chinese meetings second Tuesday of each month from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. For more information, write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Meetings typically involve a group discussion about the selected topic followed by a time for questions related to breastfeeding and mothering issues. After the formal meeting is concluded, light refreshments are offered and mothers are given a chance to chat with other mothers in a warm and welcoming environment. Mothers are also invited to borrow from our multi-lingual lending library with titles that cover all aspects of positive parenting or to purchase specially imported items from our sling/book store.
LLL meetings are very helpful for breastfeeding mothers, but can also provide much-needed preparation for expectant moms since a bit of education can make a big difference in the successful outcome of a rewarding breastfeeding experience. We welcome anyone who wants to learn more about mothering through breastfeeding. Meetings are a great way to meet like-minded friends and make connections with other in the community.

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. They can provide information and practical suggestions to help a mother cope with any difficulties that may occur. La Leche League Leaders are available to speak with a mother on the telephone or to answer questions by email. The training which a Leader receives through the accreditation process makes her uniquely qualified to support breastfeeding mothers. Selected initially for her experience, motivation and empathy, a La Leche League Leader is required to complete a comprehensive program to familiarize herself with most aspects of breastfeeding and also to develop her counseling skills. Once accredited, a Leader is provided with a continuing supply of information and support, including regular journals, contact with other experienced Leaders, and enrichment workshops and conferences. All Leaders are volunteers. For meeting information or breastfeeding support contact:
