Testimonials from Moms of Multiples
Thank you so much for all the help and guidance you have provided us. There is no way we would have made it 5+ months providing breastmilk to these boys without your help! If there is anything I can ever do to help out, let me know, especially with your milk for multiples class. There just isn't enough good information locally on carrying and giving birth to twins and your class helped me so much!
Thank YOU for being an angel on our breastfeeding and pumping journey!
I attended Angela's Mother's Milk for Multiples class and heard about the possibilities of preterm labor/delivery, long NICU stays, having to pump extra to build supply for multiples vs just one infant, and I really thought "Oh that won't happen to me". Of course we always think we will be the exception! I had great success nursing my oldest child to one year of age and had great supply so while I didn't anticipate problems with the twins, I wanted to be sure I was off to the best start possible.. While I always knew "anything could happen", I still thought "if I invest in the resources and do my research on which NICU we would want to attend if needed, I wont need it". Well, I am able to say that not only am I thrilled with the breastfeeding package, but I am glad that I also toured the NICUs because guess what..I needed both resources! My labor started at 33.5 weeks after a very healthy, uncomplicated pregnancy. I ended up delivering at 35 weeks and the twins spent five weeks in the NICU for feeding and growing. Having Angela as a resource while in the NICU was worth every penny. I was able to consult with Angela throughout the process and help advocate my wishes to the medical team. Even though I was told on my tour of the NICU it was a very breastfeeding friendly environment and it was preferred over bottle feeding, I did not experience that at all. It was very reassuring to have another medically minded person with breastfeeding as a priority to reach out to and discuss with, and that is where Angela came in. I loved her home visits as a chance to finally meet the girls and see all of our efforts come together as I successfully tandem nursed my twins. THANK YOU AGAIN Angela!
Had it not been for this amazing woman, I would not have had the knowledge, strength or courage to breastfeed my Littles for 13 months. I never had the chance to make it to one of her classes, but had the honor of meeting with her one on one - definitely worth the time and drive!!! Thank you
