La Leche League of South Bend has several free, informal gatherings a month where we explore all topics related to breastfeeding: the good, the bad and the ugly! Whether you are pregnant and looking for information, a new parent struggling to learn the art of breastfeeding, or an experienced mother seeking support and camaraderie, we are here to help with information and support. We look forward to welcoming you and your children!
At the next La Leche League meeting we'll have an opportunity to think about and share our pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, and mothering stories. As you know, every meeting lends itself to opportunities to listen and learn from each other, as often accompanied by tears as laughter. One of our former LLL Leaders, Krista Bailey, is involved in Michiana Monologues at IUSB (http://www.michianamonologues.org/), and in hearing so many women's stories as a part of this production was reminded of the wonderful perspectives in the LLL community. She will be visiting with us this week to help us to think about the healing and enjoyable process of forming our own experiences as stories. She will also be happy to discuss the possibility of submitting a story to the monologues with anyone who is interested (http://www.michianamonologues.org/informationsheet.html).
As always, we will have room for your breastfeeding questions, concerns, and successes.
See you on: Tuesday, October 23 at 10am Women's Care Center 360 N. Notre Dame Ave. (where it intersects with La Salle Ave.) South Bend, Indiana 46617
