From 10am to 12pm at Lloyd Park Children's Centre, Winns Ave entrance, Lloyd Park, Walthamstow E17 5JW.

Our friendly, supportive, mother-to-mother meetings are a safe space where you can dig through all those 'shoulds' and reconnect with your instincts, while picking up information and ideas to help you and your family. We meet on the first and third Wednesdays of the month and alternate two different styles of meeting: 

Coffee mornings are informal social get-togethers where you can meet other pregnant/breastfeeding women. There will be an LLL leader (breastfeeding counsellor) present. 

Series meetings (Series 1, Series 2, etc) are LLL leader-led and are structured around a topic for general discussion, although there is plenty of room in the conversation for any questions you'd like to bring

Please arrive by 10:00 for a 10:15 start, where possible. Meetings finish at 12:00.

You don't need to be an LLL member to attend these meetings. However, we're required to give the children’s centre a list of those attending, and you'll be asked to complete a registration form if it's your first visit to the centre. A voluntary £1 donation to LLL WF is also welcome.
