What Our Parents are Saying

"I thought I had breastfeeding all figured out..until my third child! Emily came to my home and put my mind at ease by weighing my babe, checking his latch, and giving me invaluable information and resources to help me up my supply. She is the best!" - CR

"Upon the birth of our little boy we were in need of a lactation specialist and knew Emily would be the perfect person to help us through the challenges we were facing. Our son was born 3 weeks early and needed a little extra help to figure things out. Emily's patience and knowledge was what I needed to stick through it. Thanks to her we are successfully breastfeeding! Emily, thank you for all you've done to help us!"         -B.S.

"Emily is also our lactation consultant. She helped us change some of our breastfeeding practices to make it more comfortable and efficient. She was so gentle with our son and provided clear, helpful answers to our questions. We loved it! Emily is wonderful professional and we highly recommend her."   -PB
