“Your guidance as a lactation counselor was invaluable!  In the early days of breastfeeding my son, it was super helpful to have you observe us as we nursed and make adjustments to ensure a proper latch.  When I had pain initially, you helped me find answers and encouraged me to stick with it....  Besides, you are such a joy to be around, it was fun to have you visit during the early postpartum days!”
