mama breastfeeding her baby

breastfeeding support ( . Y . )

"My husband and I met Amy when we took her class before the birth of our first child. She was such a brilliant, supportive and entertaining instructor! Even after we had our baby and prepared to have our second, Amy has remained a great source of information and comfort. That is why, when I was having issues breastfeeding my second child, she was the first person I thought to call for help. She spent as much time as I needed to listen and observe the issues we were having. She asked and listened to what my goals were and gave me several suggestions. Amy is non-judgmental and gives you the confidence you need to be successful throughout your breastfeeding journey. Thanks to Amy's advice - we are nursing much better!! She continues to check in to make sure everything is going well. It is clear that what Amy does is not just a job, it is her passion." -Whitney Bouma

breastfeeding quotes

"babies suck."

-amy brooks murphy


“Mother’s milk, time-tested for millions of years, is the best nutrient for babies because it is nature’s perfect food.”
- How to Raise a Healthy Child in Spite of Your Doctor – Mendelsohn


“The benefits to the mother of immediate breastfeeding are innumerable, not the least of which after the weariness of labor and birth is the emotional gratification, the feeling of strength, the composure, and the sense of fulfillment that comes with the handling and suckling of the baby.”
- Ashley Montague


“The La Leche League succeeded by reconstructing the neighbourly networks which medicine had tried to discredit. League members began to trust and rely on one another. Their confidence in their intuitive connection with their children grew; and for both of these reasons, they found it less necessary to rely on doctors, except in emergencies.”
- David Cayley – CBS Radio


“No one could give her such soothing and sensible consolation as this little three-month-old creature when he lay at her breast and she felt the movement of his lips and the snuffling of his tiny nose.”
- Tolstoy – War and Peace


“He saw a girl working about the stove, saw that she carried a bay on her croked arm, and that the baby was nursing, its head up under the girl’s shirtwaist. And the girl moved about, poking the fire, shifting the rusty stove lids to make a better draft, opening the oven door; and all the time the baby sucked, and the mother shifted it deftly from arm to arm. The baby didn’t interfere with her work or with the quick gracefulness of her movements.”
- John Steinbeck – The Grapes of Wrath


“…A baby nursing at a mother’s breast… is an undeniable affirmation of our rootedness in nature.”
- David Suzuki – Toronto Star


“Lady madonna baby at your breast
Wonders how you manage to feed the rest.”
- The Beatles


“I think that i shall never see,
a poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is pressed
against the earth’s sweet flowing breast.”
- Joyce Kilmer


“A little child born yesterday
a thing on mother’s milk and kisses fed.”
- Homer


“A pair of substantial mammary glands has the advantage over two hemispheres of the most learned professor’s brain, in the art of compounding a nutritious fluid for children.”
- Oliver Wendall Holmes
