Meg, you have held me with such compassion in some of my most challenging moments as a new mother. Over and over again. Your calm and caring convinced me, even when I felt so lost, that it was going to be ok, as you aptly helped me troubleshoot one obstacle after another in feeding my babies. Your passion for what you do is so clear and you are so giving to all of those who are lucky to work with you. Breastfeeding was something that I mistakenly thought was so simple, yet I consider myself so lucky to have had Meg’s coaching and help to give the gift of the breastfeeding experience that I had so hoped for.
