LaLecheLiga Deutschland's English-speaking Area
La Leche League Germany is the English-speaking Area within La Leche Liga Deutschland, the national German organization affiliated with La Leche League International. We exist to provide information, encouragement and support to women interested in breastfeeding, particularly those in the international community. All women interested in breastfeeding are welcome at our informal English-language meetings. If you are interested in attending a German-speaking meeting, please see the web site of LLL Deutschland. There are also meetings held in English in Austria, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Luxembourg, and Belgium.
Membership in La Leche League costs EUR 32 ($40), which includes a one year subscription to NEW BEGINNINGS, a magazine filled with practical hints, book reviews, and breastfeeding information. Membership without the magazine costs EUR 27.00. Membership is not required to attend meetings.
