Welcome to La Leche League Oxfordshire!

LLL mission statement

La Leche League's mission is to help mothers worldwide to breastfeed through mother-to-mother 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 is an international, nonprofit, nonsectarian organization dedicated to helping women who want to breastfeed.LLLOxfordshire meetings

All our meetings are currently online using Zoom


We're still here and happy to support you and your family with breastfeeding/mothering/parenting. We especially love using our well-established, friendly women-only Facebook group to keep our community closely connected during this period of social distancing. Please see our regular meetings page and our antenatal sessions page for meeting dates.


Please note that La Leche League Leaders are all volunteers and we are dealing many of the common current challenges of juggling other work from home / key work away from home, helping our children with school work, household demand for bandwith etc. We may not be able to respond as quickly or as thoroughly as we'd like during this difficult period but we'll do our best!

LLL Oxfordshire Online Meetings during Covid19
Here are some other ways you can get breastfeeding support if you need it.

As always, if you are worried about your baby or yourself, please contact your midwifery or health visiting team, or NHS 111 (or 999 if it's an emergency). 

  • Look on the LLLGB website. It's been greatly expanded in recent years and has up to date, accurate information on many common breastfeeding issues, all written by LLL Leaders. It's much appreciated if you can check to see if you can find what you need online before contacting a Leader.
  • Another excellent place to look online is Kellymom, which is non-LLL resource but consistent with our philosophy.  It's comprehensive and easily searchable.
  • Post your question on our private, women-only Facebook group. This is the most efficient way to ask a specific question, as we can support many mothers with similar issues at the same time, and mothers can support each other. The group is usually checked by Leaders several times a day.  If you prefer your question to be posted anonymously, you can This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.or message us via our Facebook page and we will post it in the group on your behalf.
  • Contact a local LLL Leader. This is usually the quickest way to talk to someone 1:1. You might need to call a few people and/or leave a couple of messages before you find someone - most of us also have jobs and some will be much busier than usual during this time. Please keep trying.
  • Call the LLL National Helpline on 0345 120 2918.  Leaders all over the country will be trying hard to increase capacity on the helpline (though it still may be quicker to call a local Leader directly).
  • Use LLLGB's webchat or Helpform services. Log onto the LLLGB website to see if the Chat box pops up.


With much LLLove to you and your families and solidarity with LLL families all round the world.
