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.

I was not planning to have a C-section but we discovered at the last minute that my baby was breech. Dr. Hevron and the hospital team were wonderful about talking me through the operation and keeping a positive atmosphere the whole time.
