From a Pharmacy Rep in Central Iowa /July 2012:
I want to thank you so very much for all your help. You gave me encouragement to keep going. I am still giving what I have. You definitely have a calling from God. You are amazing at what you do! I am blessed to have met you. God bless. Thank you.......
From an ER nurse who works for the largest birthing hospital in Iowa:
You are truly a blessing to us nursing moms and AMAZING at what you do. It is so great to know there is help out there where you don't have to wait 2 weeks because for a new nursing mom 2 weeks can make or break you. Thanks for all you do! You are wonderful!

I invited Angela to our home after Emmanuel was born because I was determined to make breastfeeding work and give it my best try. I was struggling within the first week using a nipple shield which I had asked Angela to see if she would be able to get him eating without needing a shield. I had been told my nipples were too flat and that the shield was necessary, however it was such a pain to try to use while feeding. Turns out that wasn't true! After spending about an hour and a half with her help we were very successful! Ever since her visit we have been shield free! This is much more convenient for me and satisfyung for baby, I was also pleased with her advice in helping to get my milk supply up where it needed to be. I have enjoyed her breastmilk boosting tea (Breastmilk Boost Tea) and granola, and have had no problems with supply since her visit. I am happy to say that Emmanuel has been eating great and already gained almost 2 pounds! Thanks Angela!
Angela: You did a great job! Thanks for doing that on such a short notice! (January 10, 2012)
Amber Biga (Biga_2003@hotmail.com) 01/13/2012 11:54 Thanks you so much Angela for coming and doing a home visit when Maddux arrived! The one hour you spend in our home working with us on getting him to latch correctly and educating me on how our pump work has been a life saver.Without your assistance, nursing would be as successful as it is and I would have probabaly stopped weeks ago! Nursing is going wonderful NOW and I couldnt have done it without your knowledge and educational information on the subject!!! Thanks so much!
Thank you for the email summary. There is a lot to remember with breastfeeding so the written summary helps with some of the small details I forgot. I did find out that the baby has a had a good weight gain – the doctor could barely believe it. I know it’s been those last couple feedings – shes gotten so much milk!
I can’t thank you enough for your help. The way you coached me over the phone and at my house means more than you will ever know. I am healing up fast and no longer wince when she latches on. Breastfeeding is back to the fascinating bonding experience it was in the first couple days. I will give your name to anyone struggling with breastfeeding!
Thank you so much for coming yesterday. The information and encouragement you gave us what just what we were needing. J and C
