“I just watched the first module of your Baby’s Perspective series. I loved it! I want to congratulate you on an excellent teaching tool with very good video editing. Thank you for putting this series together. I am convinced it will help many health care professionals interacting with mother-baby dyads. I especially like your anecdote illustrating the “uninvited baby”. What a great and respectful approach you had.”  Ghislaine Reid, IBCLC Montreal, Canada.
