Resources for Women and Children in Athens

 

Breastfeeding Support - La Leche League

La Leche League is a voluntary organization that supports women interested in or actively breastfeeding. It was founded in 1956 and has flourished so that it is now a worldwide organization that has the backing of the World Health Organization.

The regular monthly meetings are held throughout the greater Athens area with both English or Greek speaking groups available.  They offer a personal support network from mothers who themselves have breastfeeding experience and group leaders are trained to give specific advice for women who may need additional support. It is a wealth of knowledge for parents to be and has a library with many books and resources relating to pregnancy, breastfeeding and parenting which members are entitled to use.  Women are encouraged to attend during pregnancy so as to be fully informed prior to birth.

Breastfeeding babies and children are welcome at the meetings.
