What parents who have worked with us have to say:
"Laura was wonderful in making me feel supported in following my new found mama instincts with what felt the most natural to me and that was invaluable, especially during a time when I was doubting myself. I felt extremely supported in doing what was best for myself and my family. I HIGHLY recommend her."

"I cannot say enough good things about Laura. Four days after birth, my nipples were sore and my milk had just come in and despite taking all of the breastfeeding classes, I still felt unprepared and lacked confidence about breastfeeding. Laura helped with everything! She had remedies for the sore nipples, suggestions for latch techniques, and was able to quantify during a visit how much milk little one was getting. To me, her help has been just as crucial as the doctor who delivered dear little one. Would recommend to anyone."
"We were blessed to have been able to meet Laura just two days after my daughter was born and when we needed her most! She came with all of her pep and knowledge, all while making me feel more confident as a mother and in my abilities to nurse my daughter. She gave me all the tools necessary to breastfeed successfully. I honestly wish she could touch the lives of every woman wanting to nurse their child as she did mine. I will never forget what she has taught me!"
