The Value of Support

The Value of Support

MilkWorks is proud to have five board certified lactation consultants (IBCLCs) on staff. Under the direction of Dr. Kathy Leeper, our breastfeeding medicine specialist, they work as a team to provide care based on the latest research and years of hands on experience.

Here's what Joanna writes: As a first-time mother of a 4-month-old, I have only now had a chance to reflect and think about thanking everyone for the excellent care I received at Milkworks, especially Michelle Jenkins RN. I won't go into the nitty gritty details of our problems initially, but as a nurse myself I always thought it was nice to receive a note of thanks, which is why I am writing.

I am choking up writing this email because breastfeeding my son Harrison has been such an incredible journey. As I quickly learned no journey is without its hills (or mountains) and valleys. I have never trained for a marathon but those early days of triple feeding sure felt like I was training for something amazing! And amazing it has been.....

I spent many days in March & April with Michelle. Her calm demeanor, gentle touch, extensive knowledge, & awesome personality was just what I needed and I think without her support I might've given up breastfeeding.

I had a lot of contact with the staff at Milkworks and found that everyone was so helpful.

I truly feel indebted to Milkworks! Please pass this on and if I can ever be of help please let me know. I tried to attend the support group on several occasions but it never worked with our schedule and before I knew it I was back to work!

Truly grateful,
Joanna Morgan MSN RN OCN
