Lidia was a second-time mom who was fairly new to the area. Our nurse Amy, with the assistance of our Spanish interpreter Jesse, was able to provide Lidia with information about a local playgroup in the area. Offering multiple weight checks, Amy reassured Lidia that her newborn son was gaining weight well and that she was doing a wonderful job breastfeeding! Lidia had been concerned about her baby’s nasal congestion, so Amy was able to provide education regarding the use of saline drops and a bulb syringe to relieve congestion. This helped Lidia spend less time worrying and spend more time enjoying little Sebastian!
Telma was a mom that needed some help getting her baby to breastfeed. Our nurse Amber offered breastfeeding education and reassurance, and Amber also provided Telma with a thermometer, showing her how to take baby Kerri’s temperature.
