NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The North/Central Berkshire La Leche League Group is meeting in North Adams to provide breast feeding information and support to mothers in the region and Southern Vermont.

Pregnant women, mothers with babies and toddlers, and other women interested in learning about breast feeding are welcome.

The group meets at Shima Boutique on Main Street at 6:30 p.m. on the last Friday of the month. There are four meeting topics in a series, although any and all breastfeeding matters and questions may be discussed. The next scheduled meeting will be on June 29, with the topic of "The Normal Course of Breast feeding and Avoiding Difficulties." The last meeting in the series addressing, "Nutrition, Starting Solids, and Weaning," will be held on July 27.

The group also hosts meetings in Pittsfield on the second Wednesday of the month at 7 p.m. at Unitarian Universalist Church on 175 Wendell Ave. The next Pittsfield meeting is on June 13 with the topic of "Baby Arrives: The Family and the Breastfed Baby."

La Leche League leaders are experienced breast-feeding mothers who offer information and support through monthly meetings and phone help. In addition, leaders have access to medical and legal information through professional liaison leaders and the research library of La Leche League International. For more information or for breast feeding help, contact Marya LaRoche at 413-441-7176 or Judy Dorr at 413-443-9599.
