Review for Nursing Mothers Counsel, Palo Alto, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a first time Mother and I registered for a free breastfeeding class with NMC. The lecture itself was fantastic with a great video and pictures and a very experienced lecturer.
After my baby was born, I initially had a little problem breastfeeding--Some women might describe this as a good problem to have--too much milk!
I called NMC volunteer and was connected to an absolutely wonderful and astute mother who recognized that part of my nervousness was from being a tired new mom just grappling with her new role . . . she gave me excellent tips for breastfeeding but also made me feel okay about being nervous/frustrated at times and within 2 weeks I found myself totally turned around and didn't have any problems with breastfeeding. She also gave me an excellent idea of donating excess milk to preemies. I would highly recommend every new mom to join NMC and I myself am looking forward to becoming a volunteer.

Role:  Client Served & I spent a day cleaning SF zoo.
