La Leche League (LLL) Leaders are volunteer counselors who have breastfed/chestfed their own babies, and are active in providing breastfeeding/chestfeeding support in their communities.

A Leader is someone who is currently accredited as a La Leche League International (LLLI) Leader, pursues the LLL Mission, acts in accordance with the LLL Policies and Standing Rules, and complies with the LLL Code of Conduct.  All Leaders bring their unique experience, warmth, empathy and other skills to their LLL work, whether they have had one baby or several.

There are over 4000 Leaders in over 80 countries on every continent but Antarctica.

They may lead a local group and hold meetings. LLL is not affiliated to, and does not endorse or support, any business, organization or religion whose premises we use for meetings.

They may also offer a variety of other support including phone, text, email and via social media.
