Donate today for Healthier Babies & Healthier Moms – La Leche League Canada
Close to 9 out of 10 Canadian mothers start out breastfeeding their babies, yet only 1 in 4 mothers breastfeed exclusively for the recommended 6 months.
Why does this matter? Breastfeeding is important: babies who are not breastfed are more likely to become ill, to be obese as children or teens and to have certain health problems as adults. As well, women who breastfeed reduce their risk of breast cancer, ovarian cancer and osteoporosis.
- La Leche League Canada is a nationally registered charity dedicated to helping families achieve their breastfeeding goals. Our accredited volunteer Leaders host local meetings and provide one-to-one support for over 100,000 pregnant women and new mothers each year.
