LLL Bristol meetings Sept-Dec 2019

Widening horizons

We meet twice a month, on the second Wednesday and the fourth Thursday of each month during term times. 

Every second Wednesday we meet, from 10.30am to 12, at The Milk Shed, 26 North Street, Southville, BS3 1HW.

Please note that our meetings on Wednesday 9th October ‘19 and Wednesday 13th November ‘19 will be running at the slightly earlier time of 10am – 11:30am, as there is another group booked into the Milk Shed directly after us.

We also meet every fourth Thursday, from 10.30am to 12, at Avonmouth Community Centre, 257 Avonmouth Road, Bristol, BS11 9EN. Our meetings here are ideal for those of you with older children as there are plenty of toys and space to play while we chat. Whatever the age of your nurslings, you are welcome to come along to either meeting.

Whether you have a question or would just like to meet up with other breastfeeding mums, come along for a chat and a drink. Our leaders will be on hand to offer support.

Mums with bumps, babies and children of all ages are welcome to come along. We start with an informal discussion around the month’s topic and there is always time to discuss any issues mums bring along on the day and to browse through our extensive library on all manner of breastfeeding topics. 

Our meeting titles are just a starting point, don’t feel put off if it doesn’t seem relevant to you just at the moment. It’s often surprising where the conversations lead. There will always be an LLL Leader around to talk to about any specific concerns.

Meetings are free and open to all, however if you are not an LLLGB member we ask if you are able to then please make a donation of £2 to help us keep the group running. This helps us keep our Leader’s training up to date, run our library and keep the all important tea and coffee flowing. Becoming an LLL GB member is easy, just visit https://www.laleche.org.uk/join. Membership starts at £2.50 per month. As well as your local meetings you’ll receive regular copies of LLL’s Breastfeeding Matters magazine.
