I Love breastmilk I know that sounds weird, but breast-feeding has changed my life and my outlook upon motherhood. Also, my husband has got a prosthetic breast and is able to breast-feed our daughter as well. My nipples are not able to produce enough for my beautiful daughter and now with a prosthetic nipple my husband is able to breast-feed as well. None of this would've been possible without the help of lactating mothers who donated the breastmilk for my husband and I to drink. I am forever indebted to the la leche of Rapid City, you will have a you have a place in my heart forever. Sincerely mom meyers
