“Ina taught us to see breastfeeding as the language new babies use to connect - not simply a way to get food.This changed an overwhelming chore into interludes of rest & peace. She interpreted baby's every breath, sound & gesture enabling us to see our baby as a whole human being: expressive, aware, social - not just a blob with needs & reflexes. Her respect for newborns is contagious. It filled us with awe and deepened our relationship to the person this baby is becoming, for life.”
"Thank you for arming us with information not readily available so we could safely navigate the hospital stay & understand our baby's needs. We learned he needs to be held vertically nearly all the time! We learned not to listen to staff who suggested I rest because day-old babies don’t need to eat, so don’t really need their mothers! You taught us sucks vs swallows! WOW! We learned hand expressing! Amazing! You told us to expect our son to lose weight so we were not at all alarmed! And that’s just a few things we learned in class that put us at ease during the hospital stay!"
