Here is what one new breastfeeding mom had to say...
“I’m a first time mom and needed some help with breastfeeding. I was anxious about if my newborn was eating enough and struggled with latching. Working with Sue over video made all the difference. She helped me determine that my son had a lip tie and provided direction on getting it fixed. She also helped me work through getting a good latch and feeding schedule. Most importantly Sue helped relieve so much of my anxiety and helped me feel more confident and comfortable feeding my baby” ~Andrea
