I can honestly say that the reason I didn't give up on breastfeeding is because of Christine's knowledge, expertise, and kindness.

I delivered a healthy baby girl in October of 2018. Being a first-time mom, I knew there would be challenges. On the other hand, I felt like my background as a labor and delivery nurse would help give me an advantage in my new role as a Mommy. I became frustrated very early on because we were both struggling with breastfeeding. I help teach other people how to breastfeed their babies, yet I couldn't get my baby to latch correctly?! Even though I knew lots of tips and tricks, I struggled with my supply. She was losing weight and had jaundice, and I was exhausted. I needed help and Christine was there for me. She is an exceptional nurse. Every minute, (that turned into hours) she spent working with my baby and me was a gift. She was patient and always had encouraging words. She listened to me through my tears. I can honestly say that the reason I didn't give up on breastfeeding is because of her knowledge, expertise, and kindness. In fact, my baby has only had breastmilk and she is now six months old. I can't describe how important that is to me and feel like Christine dramatically changed our lives for the better. She is an Extraordinary Nurse!
