I have heard that I am now an accredited La Leche League Leader! (Breastfeeding Councillor)

"La Leche - that's an unusual name;
how do you say it?"
"It means 'the milk' in Spanish.
Just say 'la letch-ay'"

So what does this mean I will be doing? well one thing will be telephone help:

The LLL Leaders who take the calls are mothers like you, answering the phone in their own home. They will listen to your questions and offer practical suggestions and warm support. They have the most up-to-date breastfeeding information available and can pass on the wealth of experience of other breastfeeding mothers, to help you solve the problems and make the decisions that are right for you and your baby.

Because Leaders are mothers too, they may not immediately be available to answer the phone, being perhaps busy with family matters: changing a nappy, picking up children from school, out shopping, or whatever. If they can't come to the phone they will often have an answer phone message with the numbers of other Leaders you can contact, or you can try again later. Most Leaders take calls in the evening and weekends too, though many partners and families aren't exactly ecstatic if the phone rings late at night or early in the morning! We ask for your help in avoiding those times unless your problem is really urgent.

It is because they are active mothers, caring for their families, that makes Leaders so well placed to support you in your mothering.
