It can be accessed from the NC Breastfeeding Coalition website www.ncbfc.org or at www.zipmilk.com  Individuals responsible for resources can post and edit their own entries whenever necessary.

La Leche League 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 of NC is accredited by La Leche League International, and volunteer Leaders are experienced breastfeeding mothers who are familiar with research and current findings dealing with all aspects of nursing.

They offer practical information and support to nursing mothers through telephone help, monthly meetings, and lending libraries of books on childbirth, breastfeeding, and related parenting topics. All breastfeeding mothers and pregnant women interested in breastfeeding are welcome to attend meetings or call leaders for breastfeeding help. Mothers can become members of La Leche League and enjoy even more benefits.

Nursing Mothers of Raleighan all-volunteer non-profit 501(c)(3) organization serving breastfeeding families in the Triangle area. We charge no dues, provide support by phone and meet in a church on the first Thursday evening of each month at 7 PM and the third Thursday morning at 9:30 AM. We reach mothers on Facebook and at MeetUp.

Our volunteers (Counseling Mothers) are recruited from women who regularly attend our public meetings for at least six months and demonstrate their passion for listening to and helping other women who want to breastfeed their babies.

We strive to provide evidence-based information in all of our efforts to support and promote breastfeeding. In order to do this, our counselors attend monthly education sessions in addition to attending one of our two monthly public meetings. Counseling Mothers also attend an annual conference covering the latest research on lactation in order to be able to provide the most up-to-date information to the public.

After serving as a Counseling Mother-In-Training for a period of one year, each of our volunteers takes an exam that gives them full Counseling Mother status, at which point they may lead public meetings and provide telephone counseling support. Further details are available on our website www.nursingmothersofraleigh.org
