"Keep helping as many women as possible! We don't all have breastfeeding support, and the breastfeeding peer counselor program will be so helpful for everyone! Love it!"
"She listened to my concerns and would provide helpful advice. She will send me links to useful videos as well. She reminded me breastfeeding is very challenging, but I was doing my very best. She definitely provided support and a lot of encouragement."
"She made it so much easier for me. As a first-time mom I was nervous, but with all of her help I felt like I couldn't have done it without her."
