” I followed your advice from the class and I have had a really great experience from the very beginning– so far we’re going strong, breast-feeding exclusively for 15 weeks. Also, today I dropped off my first batch of breast milk at the Northwest Mother’s Milk Bank. If it weren’t for you I would have never known that it was possible to donate breastmilk so I wanted to thank you for doing what you do.”
