About Us

The La Leche League of Greater St. Louis Mission Statement:

To help families throughout the Greater St. Louis region to breastfeed through peer 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.

La Leche League of Greater St. Louis (LLL StL) is committed to diversity and inclusion. LLL StL supports all breastfeeding, chestfeeding, and human milk feeding families, inclusive of their race, ethnicity, immigration status, national origin, creed, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, family structure, primary language, ability, or socio-economic status. LLL StL fosters diversity among its Leaders so as to incorporate a wide variety of perspectives and responsible decision-making.

LLL Leaders

LLL Leaders are volunteers who have breastfed their own babies beyond a year. They’ve completed the training curriculum by La Leche League International and can help with all the normal ages and stages of breastfeeding from pregnancy through weaning. They are happy to help all breastfeeding/chestfeeding families by phone, at local meetings, and online through the St Louis Area LLL Facebook discussion.


LLL support is free. However LLL relies on the memberships and donations of the families we serve to enable us to continue offering information and support to tomorrow’s families. We hope you’ll join in this incredible network of support.!

Annual memberships are $40 and bring you access to all LLL resources including a personal email notification of New Beginnings posts, the weekly LLL USA blog of in-depth articles and stories about all aspects of breastfeeding.

Join this international network of breastfeeding support at any meeting, at the “join/donate” link above, or by contacting a Leader.
