Membership

La Leche League helps mothers by sharing information and by giving mother-to-mother support. Your support is needed in continuing to provide La Leche League services to mothers who need us. We are a non profit organization. All annual memberships include special group discounts, discounted Area Conference registration and group library privileges. Most importantly, your membership or donation helps us continue to help mothers and babies by continuing Leader education and training, maintaing our telephone message service, buying books for group libraries, providing handouts at our meetings and printing and mailing meeting notices. 
 
If you have any questions or would like more information about Membership, please email us at westOClll@gmail.com or contact a Leader.
 
A one year membership is $40.00. You can join in person at a meeting with cash or check. *PayPal and Credit Card payments accepted soon.* Or you can mail the completed Membership Form (attached below) along with your check to the address on the form.

There are multiple benefits of breastfeeding available for both mothers and babies, but did you know that becoming an LLL member can enhance those benefits? Mothers who are members of LLL breastfeed longer because they have the information, education, support, and encouragement they need to enjoy the experience. Membership in LLL is a real bargain when you consider the costs of not breastfeeding!
