Space Coast La Leche League
Our 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.
All breastfeeding mothers and mothers-to-be interested in breastfeeding are welcome to come to our meetings, and email or call one of our Leaders for breastfeeding help or information. Meeting locations and times are subject to change; please email or call to confirm. Healthy children are always welcome at meetings.
The monthly Nursing Toddler Meeting is open for anyone to attend, including moms with smaller babies, or babies on the way. The meeting topic will be geared more specifically toward the experience of nursing a toddler, but any questions are always welcome.

Catholic Nursing Mothers League
The Catholic Nursing Mothers League was founded in April 2006 by childbirth educator, breastfeeding counselor and former natural family planning instructor, Pamela H. Pilch. It was inspired by the work of Sheila Kippley, author of Breastfeeding and Natural Child Spacing, and more recently, Breastfeeding and Catholic Motherhood.
CNML provides encouragement and resources for Catholic mothers to gather in parishes to learn about breastfeeding and mothering, and to give and receive spiritual and emotional support.
Meetings are the First Wednesday at Ascension Catholic Church (Ministry Building Room 313) for Brevard area mothers or expectant mothers who would like to join and learn more about Natural Family Planning, Parenting, Breastfeeding and Spiritual Motherhood. Women of any faith tradition are always welcome to join us as well.
