La Leche League offers encouragement, information, and education for nursing families. We are online, as close as your phone, and in neighborhoods around the globe. Please join us in Salt Lake City for discussion circles of expectant and nursing parents, some with a different perspective and some a lot like you!
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive notices of upcoming meetings. Due to the coronavirus pandemic we are currently meeting virtually.
We look forward to meeting you, by phone or online!
We have been meeting via Zoom for over a year now and it’s beginning to feel like home. Meetings will continue virtually until the end of the year and will continue to have a place on our meeting schedule when we ease back to in-person meetups. We love the flexibility this gives all of us to pop in spontaneously, wherever we are.
Leaders from the Salt Lake and Weber/Davis groups are collaborating to offer meetings together every Thursday. We alternate meeting times to reach as many nursing parents as we can, 10am one week and 7pm the next. We have welcomed folks on the road, far away, and sometimes on a lunch break at work. If you need a little more support right now, treat yourself to weekly meetings and get fresh insight from a new mix of parents and Leaders with every visit.
Email email@example.com and we will be happy to add you to our meeting list. You’ll receive timely reminders of our monthly schedule with updated Zoom links. This is a great thing to do while you are expecting as well as while you are nursing. You’ll get insight into the days ahead and you’ll get to know other nursing and pumping parents who have a lot in common with your own family.
LLL of Weber/Davis is hosting a Facebook Live Meeting on Thursday March 19 @ 6:30pm.

If you are curious about how the organization was born, check out this blog post from our parent blog, La Leche League USA. During the 1950s there was little information about breastfeeding in the US and no internet to search! In the early days, LLL Founders answered long questions by phone at home with long curly cords stretching around doorways and toddlers. They gathered around kitchen tables to hand write letters in answer to questions delivered by foot to their home mailboxes. Even in the early 1990s, Founders would answer answer questions one by one. Once when I called to ask a question on behalf of a Salt Lake mom, one of the founders took my call and sent a big manila envelope stuffed with articles and encouragement to share.
One-on-one parenting and mentoring support remains the heart and soul of La Leche League. There is nothing like the sharing that happens when we get together in person holding our babies. You may have a chance to tell your story or meet a great new friend. We hope you will join us at an upcoming meeting — perhaps tomorrow.
Welcome! La Leche League blossoms with each new family.
