Angel sent from above! Katie literally saved us after our twins were born and had trouble putting on weight. We saw multiple lactation consultants and pediatricians and it was her time, experience, and expert advice that allowed me to continue to exclusively breastfeed my girls and help them to put on weight! She is the whole package-former NICU and labor and delivery nurse turned lactation consultation with inpatient and outpatient experience. She is also a mom herself so she knows first hand the struggles of breastfeeding. Not only was Katie's clinical advice right on point but her compassion and understanding is just what a new or experienced mom needs during her breastfeeding journey.
Katie is amazing-she has the expertise to help you and at the same time, she meets you where you are at. Meaning- she will work with you with what you are comfortable with doing. And as a sleep deprived new mom- you don't need anyone pushing their agenda on you- you need someone who is going to help you breast feed your way.
Sarah blends compassion, patience and expertise in her practice. We have met with her once per week during our daughter’s first 6 weeks. Each visit we gained insight, some ideas to evolve with, and perhaps most importantly - a huge sense of relief. That we were on the right track, as Sarah would reassure us with her calm professionalism.
My wife and I wish Sarah upon every
new parent and parent to be.
"Sarah is incredibly knowledgeable, amazingly kind, grounding, calming and so reliable. She is the reason that I am still breastfeeding today. Everyone needs someone like Sarah in their corner and for our family she has been the single most supportive person postpartum. We are forever grateful for her."
"Sarah is so wonderful! She has been such a big help in working out the kinks of breastfeeding with my new baby. Her knowledge, patience and passion for breastfeeding have made such a difference and having her come to my house is such a convenience. I highly recommend Initiating Lactation for any help you might need with breastfeeding."
