A Centered Approach for You And Your Child
What In-Home Lactation Support Clients Are Saying
Nicole I cannot thank you enough for helping me get through nursing with both my daughter’s. Both times I had completely different issues and you were there to help and guide me. Your detailed nursing schedules, props and support allowed me to become successful in my ability to nurse. You truly are a blessing and I’m so thankful you came into our lives!
Nicole was an incredible source of support and comfort throughout any breastfeeding issues, I experienced following the birth of both my children. She is warm, caring and easy to connect with. I have and continue to recommend her to anyone who is need of a lactation consultant.
When I was pregnant with my second child, I was determined to give breastfeeding another try. My labor with my first child was complicated, which led to breastfeeding challenges and had me pumping exclusively for 5 months. The second time around, Nicole listened to my worries, assessed my personal and unique situation and reassured me that no matter what, the baby would be fed. She addressed the potential challenges and gave me a very straightforward and simple action plan. I was able to follow the plan and see results. I ended up breastfeeding my second child until she was 17-months-old! But for me in particular, the most important and noteworthy thing about my experience with Nicole, is she didn’t judge me and wanted the best for me and family. She is not a rigid Lactation Consultant telling you to throw out all of your formula and breastfeed regardless of what mental state you are in. (I happened to hire one of these people with my first child). Nicole’s flexibility, kind heart and non-judgmental support made all of the difference and it got me so so so far!
Nicole was absolutely wonderful! She was determined to help me and made the time out of her busy schedule so that she could visit me at home. She was also prompt in replying to my emails and texts, and further provided me with a wealth of accredited resources for breastfeeding. Being a new mom can be challenging, and breastfeeding was even more so for me, but with her positive attitude and relentless support, Nicole provided me with exactly what I needed to achieve my breastfeeding goals.
After bringing my newborn home, I realized quickly that my biggest challenge was breastfeeding. Nobody really prepares you for the type of emotional and physical challenge that awaits you after childbirth, a lot to do with nursing. Hiring Nicole to come and help me during those first weeks was everything for me. She taught me how to get a good latch so I wasn’t sore all the time and she just made me become comfortable with breastfeeding. As a new mom , it really meant a lot to have Nicole in my corner and there to guide me and answer all of my questions right away. Best decision a new mom who is struggling with breastfeeding can make. Thank you Nicole!
I met first met Nicole on the postpartum unit following the birth of my daughter. My first encounter with Nicole was overwhelmingly positive, despite the fact that she a delivered a tough message: breastfeeding is hard, but she was there to coach me along! Her attitude was refreshing and allowed me to separate emotion from the process. Its all to common that you feel frustrated if breastfeeding does not come easily to you and baby. Nicole’s coaching journey followed me from hospital to home, where she made herself reachable by phone, text, and email. This was tremendously helpful as I wound up back in the hospital with a DVT blood clot and suffered from mobility issues. Nicole not only supported me through that trying time, but my whole family. She really understands that the family’s well being is critical during those first few weeks.
Nicole’s patience, grace, and spirit helped me continue on with breastfeeding, even when I faced health challenge after health challenge. I am grateful for meeting Nicole, and even more so for the support and kindness she showed me during a vulnerable time.
Nicole was my amazing support. I was having trouble with breastfeeding my first born. We were both new at this. I got in contact with Nicole and she immediately came over to help me. She came over 3-4 times to help me and coach me. Being a new mom I was very emotional and hard on myself. She really helped me get through this difficult time and got this going for us. She helped me with scheduling feeds, positioning of my arms, and properly positioning my baby. Without Nicole I wouldn’t have been able to breastfeed. She was honestly the most wonderful, patient, and easy to talk to person. I would also text and call her and she would respond and get back to me right away. Thank you Nicole for all your support.
