Breastfeeding is the most precious gift a mother can give her infant. When there is illness or malnutrition, it may be a lifesaving gift. When there is poverty, it is the only choice. - Ruth A. Lawrence, MD
My first baby was a preemie, she didn't have the ability to suck or the energy to breast feed. After only 3 weeks of using a hospital grade breast pump my milk dried up. I felt like a failure and am convinced that my daughter would have had less significant health issues her first year if she was able to have breast milk for longer than a few weeks. When our second baby also came early, he too had a hard time breastfeeding. For the first two months he was either tube fed or bottle fed. I was positive my milk was going to dry up just like last time until I started consulting with Sandy. It was because of Sandy's knowledge, encouragement, and determination for success that I was not only able to keep my milk via breast pump but I am excited to say that I am now solely breastfeeding! My son and I owe Sandy our deepest gratitude for all of her help, thank you Sandy!"
