Ann has been my nurse since I got out of my c-section. After receiving a drastic breast reduction in 2007, I was unsure of my ability to breastfeed. Ann provided me with numerous amounts of knowledge and resources that gave me hope that I would be able to breastfeed my daughter. She spent hours with me everyday teaching me how to stimulate milk production while using formula. Of course this sounds like every mother baby nurse's job description; however, we encountered many discouraging obstacles that Ann stayed very positive through and passed that encouraging attitude on to me. She made each success feel like I accomplished a lifetime goal. After having a baby us mothers need that positive attitude. I completely felt like Ann went above and beyond to meet my newborn and my needs.
