Support Groups


If you are having trouble breastfeeding, a support group may be helpful. Most support groups are free or inexpensive. To find a support group in your area, try the following:

  • Contact La Leche League, a national support organization for nursing mothers. The League sponsors groups in many cities, which meet regularly to discuss breastfeeding problems.
  • Ask the hospital where you gave birth for suggestions. Many hospitals or birthing facilities offer free support groups that meet weekly or bi-monthly.
  • Ask your obstetrician, gynecologist, general practitioner, pediatrician, midwife, or childbirth educator about local support groups.
  • Contact a lactician (lactation consultant).
