"Always kind, knowledgeable and empathetic"

About: Fife Community Services / Breast Feeding Support Service

(as a service user),

I had a really difficult time establishing breastfeeding, so contacted Breastfeeding Support for advice. I was so relieved to get a call back from Collete, who helped to calm me down and offered to visit me at home. Collete has now supported me on a number of occasions. She is always kind, knowledgeable & empathetic and has always encouraged me to persevere. She is also extremely professional and always does what she says she will do, even going above & beyond to help. If it wasn't for Collete and this service, I definitely would not still be breastfeeding 10 weeks on.

Hi

It's really lovely to read your comments and thanks for taking the time to let us know.

It's also really good to hear that with the support of the service and especially Colette you are continuing to breast feed. As you are probably aware their support will be there for your ongoing breast feeding journey.

I will pass your comments on to Colette and the team and I wish you and your family well.
