La Leche League Leaders are volunteers who support mothers/parents/families to breastfeed. This can be at groups and one-to-one, either in person, via telephone and text, or social media. They give information and encouragement on how breastfeeding works which promotes a better understanding of breastfeeding as an important element in the healthy development of a baby and its mother.

In this video a group of La Leche League leaders and members walk us through a typical session, with a particular focus on establishing breastfeeding in the early days and weeks.

A massive thanks to the lovely people at La Leche League NZ for participating in this video.
