A letter of thanks sent by me to Jackie Scott Breast Feeding Lead MIdwife Good Hope Hospital...
I’m sure you receive many letters and cards like this, saying thank you for the invaluable help you give to people but I wanted to say a personal thank you for the help you have given to me and my son (born 6 weeks prematurely), with his tongue tie and breast feeding.
My family and I are incredibly grateful to you for arranging the tongue-tie procedure so quickly (within 4 days! ) as we were told that there was a 3 week wait.
In relation to the breast feeding support you have given to my son and I, I’m not sure we would still be doing it and so successfully without your help.
Your approach and manner with new moms is just perfect! You have the ability to listen and observe moms and babies and give tailor made advice, making moms feel confident and empowered to continue feeding their babies themselves.
I have met other breast-feeding ‘guru’s’ who have been a little condescending and patronizing but you manage to get the balance of encouragement and advice just right. You manage to make each mom feel that they are important and that you have time for them despite the fact you are in incredibly high demand.
I sincerely hope the Hospital Trust and your superiors appreciate how vital you are and have been to hundreds if not thousands of families. You deserve a medal!
Thank you so much,
P. S. Thank you for finding the breast pump for me to borrow even if it does look archaic!
