Breastfeeding Support in Milwaukee

Breastfeeding Classes

At Milwaukee Doulas we offer two breastfeeding classes.  We have our Breastfeeding and Feeding Your Baby class which is a comprehensive 3+ hr class that will fully prepare you for your breastfeeding relationship and feeding your baby for his/her first year of life.  We cover not only breastfeeding, but pumping/storing milk, dealing with breastfeeding complications and difficulties, starting solids and so much more.  


We also offer our Breastfeeding Without Birthing class.  This class is good for anyone who plans on breastfeeding a baby that they have not given birth to.

La Leche League Meetings

La Leche League drop in clinics are free and are held on the first and third Wednesday of each month from 11 am to 12:30 pm.   


This is not your traditional La Leche League meeting.  We do not have regular topics that will be discussed, but instead it is a time where you can come in and get the help you need, ask the questions you need answered, and get general support to enhance your breastfeeding relationship.
