Julia worked with my husband and I (and our newborn baby boy) over the past several weeks through 6 lactation consultation sessions.
During our time together, Julia was incredibly thoughtful, diligent, patient and kind as we navigated some issues with breastfeeding, including the use of a supplemental nursing system combined with pumping. I was really impressed by her overall approach and follow-through both during and in between our sessions. She took the time to get to know our unique issues, answered our many questions, and ultimately tailored a structured strategy that worked perfectly for us. Julia also kept track of our progress (very detailed notes and follow-ups on baby's weight gain, my supply, etc.) and regularly checked in and answered my follow-up questions via text in a very punctual manner. I felt 100% supported by Julia throughout the process and the plan that we implemented over 3-4 weeks ultimately worked out. I'm now exclusively breastfeeding our 5 week old!
Huge thanks to Julia for being a real life-saver during those challenging first few weeks with a newborn. We probably would have given up on breastfeeding if it wasn't for her support.

Having Lea as a support person to help answer our questions, ease our anxiety and make us feel confident in our decisions was essential to our success. Her post-partum visits were really helpful, and she makes you feel like, “Hey, I can do this!” Not only is Lea a kind, confident and knowledgeable, she’s a pleasure to be around. After the process of delivering a new life into this world with her, we consider her not only a great addition to our breastfeeding experience, but a friend, and would highly recommend her to anyone seeking out a lacation consultant.
I am so grateful that we found Lea and met with her prenatally and after. Her follow up, care and concern for my breastfeeding journey made all the difference in meeting my goals.
