Shianne Combden

For a first time breastfeeding mother, support is a big thing. Providing the answers and attention her patients needed is one of the many reasons Shianne was nominated:

I would love to acknowledge the outstanding bf’ing support I received from the public health nurse, Shianne Combden. The immediate care we received was amazing. I received regular home visits, phone calls, and attended BF’ing support group. All of my anxiety and fears that accompany first time BF’ing were immediately put to ease because of Shianne. She was so caring and knowledgeable. The support I received from her has undoubtably contributed to my breastfeeding success! #awesomeRNs
