Crucial to breastfeeding success is the support of your family, professionals, and other breastfeeding mothers sharing their own personal experience! We encourage women, before and after giving birth, to reach out for help, ask questions, and receive friendly reminders of the difference you are making in the life of your baby by breastfeeding. The Breastfeeding Coalition regularly updates listings on the resources available in Palm Beach County ( Please click here to email for inclusion/updates to our listings):

La Leche League (LLL)
La Leche League is an international organization whose mission is “to help mothers worldwide to breastfeed through mother-to-mother support, encouragement, information, and education, and to promote a better understanding of breastfeeding as an important element in the healthy development of the baby and mother”.
