La Leche Leage International
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.
Our mission is to bring respectful, evidence-based care to childbirth.
Evidence-based care is based on the highest quality, most current medical evidence, tailored to the individual. We believe that women can make safer, more informed decisions about their care and that of their babies when they are given full and accurate information about their care options, including the potential harms, benefits, and alternatives.
Respectful care in childbirth acknowledges the humanity of the woman giving birth, her autonomy and her fundamental right to make decisions about her body and her baby. We believe that childbearing women, like all human beings, should be treated with dignity, respect, and compassion. Respectful care is essential to minimizing emotional trauma to women at a vulnerable time in their lives.
Only within Luxembourg
Parenting is a journey, a passage that begins with our own experience of being parented, and is marked by the various transitional stages in our experience of parenting our children. Whether we are conscious of this process or not, from babe in arms to leaving home our children’s needs change and grow. The journey can be gentle or tempestuous, and as parents we can feel a little lost at times. But we weren’t supposed to do this alone as the proverb says ‘it takes a village to raise a child’. Passage, parent support group aims to provide a community for parents on this journey.
Passage is a parent support group and social network for parents and professionals related to the field of education, health and children’s social development in Luxembourg. The group is run voluntarily by parents for parents with the support of practitioners with relevant experience.
