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!
***Location Change! Due to an activity at Harris Branch, next Tuesday'smeeting will be at the BITTERSWEET BRANCH (602 N Bittersweet Rd, Mishawaka, IN 46544)***
At this month's meeting we will be talking about the myriad reasons we choose to breastfeed, why we love it, why we push through the times we don't love it, and the constantly growing list of amazing things breastmilk and breastfeeding do for us physically, emotionally, and in other ways!
What are some of your favorite facts about the power of our milk and the breastfeeding bond? What inspired you to breastfeed your child/ren? What struggles have you worked through?
The cultural conversation has often centered around the "breast is best" adage, but that implies that breastfeedingis a bonus instead of simply the baseline. Since breastfeeding is the biological norm, let's change the conversation and talk about why we are glad to have (and give) the support we need to in order to make nursing possible!
As always, there will be time for any general breastfeedingquestions and troubleshooting, as well as time to share our successes and joys!
