Rebecca helped me with two of my children. When we came home from the hospital with our first daughter, I was recovering from a c-section, and my husband and I felt so overwhelmed. We worried over every little thing, and thank goodness Rebecca was there to support us. She helped to care for us (mentally, emotionally, and physically), and her knowledge of newborn care and breastfeeding was second to none. I felt comfortable and confident as a first-time mom. I struggled with breastfeeding and mastitis, and she knew every trick in the book to help. With our second daughter, we brought her home from the NICU, and although we weren't entirely new to newborn care, it felt different caring for a preemie. Rebecca again assisted with caring for her (and us) and helped us gain some knowledge of different breastfeeding techniques for preemies that were previously on a feeding tube. Our toddler never felt alone because Rebecca showered her with attention. Honestly, I'm not sure how we could have navigated the newborn time period with her help and expertise.
