As we just passed our two year mark here in Cedar City, we are so grateful for all the many mothers who have come together to make this organization what it is today. Since we opened this chapter two years ago, I have seen the mothers in our community come together to support and encourage one another, form lasting friendships, and overcome obstacles that would've been difficult on their own. It’s a beautiful thing to see and I’m so grateful to be a part of it.
La Leche League of Cedar City is a non-profit, non-sectarian organization dedicated to providing information, education and support to breastfeeding mothers. We hold monthly meetings, take helping phone calls, and provide local online support to help meet these goals. When mothers come to meetings they can expect a casual atmosphere and warm welcome.
Mothers can also expect to receive up-to-date, evidence-based breastfeeding information as well as instant help with breastfeeding problems.
The monthly meetings are based on the information, philosophies, and advice found in the worldwide best-selling book, “The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding,” along with practical and helpful mothering tips shared from our own breastfeeding experiences. Pregnant mothers come to meetings to gather information before the arrival of their new babies, while other mothers may come for the moral support.
Many mothers find that coming to La Leche League meetings is more than a place to get breastfeeding help and information; it is an opportunity to build a community of like-minded friends to share in the joys and challenges of motherhood.
La Leche League of Cedar City would like to share in the celebration of its two year anniversary by letting our Iron County community know that we still are here and going strong to support and encourage breastfeeding moms in our area.
La Leche League meetings are always free and open to the public. Pregnant and nursing mothers, babies and small children are welcome to attend. Monthly meetings are held every first Friday of the month at 10 a.m. at the Cedar City library. You can join the Facebook page called La Leche League of Cedar City Utah. If you have an immediate breastfeeding concern, please call your local La Leche League Leader today at (435) 319-9518.
