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.

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!

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!
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.
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.
Hi Pauline, thank you so much for your help. It really made a world of difference over the weekend, I have been expressing very successfully and have lots of milk in the fridge and have been able to feed from both sides without nipple shields. I'm no longer worried about my milk supply. Anyway just a quick message to say thank you.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
