National Breastfeeding Month Annual August Campaign

Read This Client’s Story to See How YOUR Support Has Changed Lives
“I first visited with Jennie the Lactation consultant at Daisy C.H.A.I.N. when my son was about 9 months old and I came down with a painful case of mastitis. I was feeling sick, in pain and very desperate.  It was the day before Christmas Eve and none of the local doctors with lactation consultants would see me. I found Daisy C.H.A.I.N. and Jennie not only saw me but spent time truly listening to me. She sat with me for some time and asked questions."I can not say enough how valuable Daisy C.H.A.I.N. has been to me and to the community. I am so grateful that they are local to me and have been available when I needed them. Every new-mom in Eugene needs to know who they are!"

When I left her office I felt armed with many options for self care, ideas of who I could talk to for medical care if needed and most importantly to me I felt not as desperate as I had when I walked in the door. Jennie then continued to contact me even over the Christmas holiday to make sure I was doing well. Almost a year later I was having problems with mastitis again. I once again attended one of Daisy C.H.A.I.N.’s open appointment times. I was not disappointed! Jennie was there again and sat with me. She listened and asked questions. She gave me lots of really helpful ideas for my breastfeeding difficulties. Her knowledge of breastfeeding and all things related is vast. I feel confident that she knows what she is talking about. She never made me feel judged or insecure for any of my emotions or thoughts relating to my breastfeeding. I can not say enough how valuable Daisy C.H.A.I.N. has been to me and to the community. I am so grateful that they are local to me and have been available when I needed them. Every new mom in Eugene needs to know who they are!” – Sara Harkness
