LAURA

Thankyou for everything that you have done for us. Thankyou for all the help and advice that you gave us in the first few weeks when Mabel was losing weight and was jaundiced. Countless other professionals wanted us to switch to formula feeding and we were receiving lots of contradictory advice however well intentioned but you gave us the confidence with support and a plan to continue breastfeeding. Without you knowledge, support and skills we wold not still be breastfeeding happily eighteen month down the line.

Thankyou so much for all your support, help and advice since our baby came home with us! Really couldn't have go through it all without you.

Testimonials

Stacey: I was very fortunate to receive excellent support from Rebecca in the early days of breastfeeding my son, who was struggling to gain weight. I'd like to give an update to say that we have finally figured out why he was slow to gain - allergies! Within a few weeks of eliminating certain foods from my diet he started to gain at the expected rate and is now a healthy, thriving baby! He's still completely breastfed at nearly 16 weeks old and there is no way we would have made it so far without Rebecca's excellent advice.

Leanne: We are now on week 24 of exclusive breastfeeding and it has definitely only been possible because of the help we had from Rebecca in weeks 2 and 4. We had a very rocky start to our breastfeeding journey, with extreme nipple damage and pain. We tried all the other support options we could find (which was very tricky in these Covid times) before contacting Breastfeeding Midlands. My only regret is that we didn't contact you sooner. The fact you were able to visit us at home that day was a real turning point for us and immediately put an end to having to express milk for feeds, which was exhausting and hard work. Rebecca's knowledge and confidence in her expertise put us at ease and undid a lot of conflicting information we had been given. She was supportive, kind and gave us clear information. It was also great to get the information summarised in written format too... we were sleep deprived and it was great to have something to refer back to. Thank you so much for being there for us at a very difficult time. I'll be recommending you to any friend who gets pregnant!

Sophie: Yesterday I found difficult as I was very anxious... We’ve just got home and she’s feeding now. I can’t tell you how happy I am that I got in touch with you!

Rosie: Rebecca saved our breastfeeding journey without doubt! When I contacted her we were at our whit's end with excruciating pain feeding due to tongue tie. Rebecca made everything seem much more manageable and spent the time we desperately needed going through all our concerns and questions. Rebecca is so lovely and made me feel so comfortable and supported. We’re now feeding pain free thanks to Rebecca’s support! Thank you.

Victoria: I can’t thank Rebecca enough for all her help and support. I was very anxious to breastfeed my second after being unable to breastfeed my first. My goal was to combination feed and Rebecca was extremely practical and open minded to allow me to achieve this goal. I returned from hospital in a lot of pain and if I had continued down the same path, I am sure it would have been too painful to continue. Having an individualised plan was vital for me to be able to succeed.

Harpal: Fantastic service and genuinely care and want to help! We have been having issues with feeding and I honestly don’t know what i would have done without Rebecca’s support. Our journey has become a pleasure rather than the burden it was becoming and we are ever grateful. One on one interaction when it comes to breastfeeding cannot be beaten, investing in this help is so important. I wish i had done it sooner. Even as a woman who has fed a child before until age 4, a new baby means a new journey. If I have another child I’ll be booking a consultation as soon as baby arrives and then one around the 2 month mark again.

Emma: There is no doubt about it that you saved our breastfeeding journey, it has been a very difficult time but I am so proud to be solely breastfeeding her. Thanks again Rebecca, your professional but friendly support at a really dark time in our lives made such a difference, more than you can possibly know after dealing with so many health professionals that didn't know or care about breastfeeding in the way you did. We will be in touch in the future to arrange a session on weaning/ managing feeding during feeding.

Charlotte: Hi Rebecca, think we're getting the hang of feeding now. Happy to write you a testimonial as you have been so helpful. Henry feeding well and wind and colic much better. Recommended by our NCT Group.

Kerry: The service has been fantastic - had a very quick response and you put me at ease straight away and have helped me to manage better an ongoing problem. Feeling much more confident and positive about continuing to breastfeed for longer now, I wish I had contacted you sooner.

Suzanne: After been seen by so many other Breast-feeding Supporters I was seen by a member of Breastfeeding Midlands. The advice I was given on positioning and attachment was so much more helpful and informative, I was shown how to feed my baby without someone taking over so, that when I was on my own later I knew what to do, they gave me the skills and confidence to feed my baby and for that I am so grateful.

Laura: Thank you for everything that you have done for us. Thank you for all your support and the excellent information that you gave us in the early weeks following Mabel's birth. Breastfeeding was really not going well for us, Mabel had lost weigh, was jaundiced and having difficulty latching. Lots of well intentioned professionals were giving us contradictory advice, the only thing they all agreed on was that we should give formula! Your guidance and support gave us the ability and confidence to continue and the care plan offered information to the paediatricians involved, which they happily followed. We are still breastfeeding eighteen months down the line and are both so grateful.

Kasia: Thank you so much for all your support, help and advice since our baby came home with us! Really could not have got through it all without you.

Katherine: I cannot begin to say what an excellent support Rebecca has been. Very caring and reassuring but also extremely professional. When she says she will help, she does! She also picked up my daughter's tongue tie after seeing so many other professionals who had not.

Riya: A big thank you to you for supporting my mummy with breastfeeding. Mummy felt really comfortable discussing all concerns with you and she learnt a lot! I am also enjoying mummy's milk.

Kath: Everyone needs you. Thank you for making expressing not only easy but fast. Thank you for helping me to get Fred to feed well, your advice and help was a massive support.
