"Thanks for the great one-on-one home visit! We learned a ton and feel much more comfortable with our baby coming in a few weeks. Great class! I recommend it to all expectant mothers."
"Stephanie was so open and relaxed when she came to see me for lactation consulting. She immediately put me at ease during what was a difficult time for me. I had many obstacles to overcome to become successful at breastfeeding. Stephanie gave me the confidence and support I needed to continue. Almost a year later we are still going strong!"
"I just wanted to thank you again for your support and assisting me and my son in becoming successful in breastfeeding! Our first conversation was reassuring because at that point I thought I'd never have the experience of breastfeeding my son -- each time I put him close to my breast he would cry and become frantic and I'd give up and give him a bottle.... You were calm, listened to me and encouraged my son and I to breastfeed. At the end of our session I felt hopeful! Now he is a pro and we are forever grateful for you and the assistance you provided!!!"
"I really want to thank you for all your help in the beginning. Learning to breastfeed was the most emotionally challenging thing I've ever done and without your help I'm not sure I would have succeeded."
"I cannot tell you how helpful our call was. You provided me with so much insight into what I am going through and helped me to put it all in perspective. Thank you."
"I can't say how much I appreciated your visit. Things are going well. Talking to you made me refocus my efforts and take stock."
"Stephanie was beyond helpful in helping me with my nursing concerns [weaning]. After consulting many nursing specialists, she was the only one who helped me accomplish my objective. And she did so in a way that was beneficial to my baby and me. She was so patient and resourceful, and most of all so understanding. She was always there to help when I needed her. I trust her advice and knowledge in this area completely. Thank you so much!"
About the new moms' group:
"I just wanted to thank you for creating [the new moms' group], it has changed my life in such a wonderful way. It got me through what was unarguably the hardest time of my life, and I now have so many great friends (and my husband does too). It made motherhood so much more wonderful and changed our experience of living in the Rivertowns for the better."
"I can't thank you enough for providing the space and the outlet of the new moms' group. It's been so awesome to meet everyone and I would like to hug you a million times for providing the outlet."
"I start work on Monday and just have to thank you. You and your group did what I needed; connected me to local women who I now go for walks with, lunch, and music classes. Thank you for saving me!"
