La Leche – New Moms Support Group– Friday, Aug 25th 10 am to 12 pm.  

Come join us for this support group where you can share and learn from other moms. 
La Leche league is an international volunteer run support group open to all families interested in lactating or providing human milk to their babies.

La Leche League was founded over 60 years ago when the founders (a small group of mothers) found that families were most successful when supported by their peers and it has continued with the premises of providing non bias support to local families.
