Throughout our stay your Lactation department served as a key component to my success in breastfeeding. Mrs. Susie, Camie, Michelle, and Mary were like mothers to me. They continued to show patience and diligence in helping myself and my fiancé to succeed at this most important job. I cannot thank them enough.
