“Being a first time mom, I never knew how challenging and depressing breastfeeding can be. Sandra is an amazing lactation consultant! She is so passionate and resourceful. During her appointments, she really takes her time to work with you towards a positive breastfeeding experience. From difficulties to getting baby to latch on to dealing with an oversupply, Sandra has supported me in a way that helped me grow confidence and feel comfortable with breastfeeding. Thank you Sandra ❤”
“I saw Sandra several times while I was struggling with breastfeeding my new baby. She is incredibly supportive and knowledgeable about breastfeeding. I love that she continues to educate herself on the latest information as well. I felt she really cared about me and my struggles and went above and beyond with her time to help us.”
“Sandra is an amazing lactation consultant. She is so passionate about helping women be able to reach their goals. Sandra went out of her way to introduce me to essential oils which helped me with my ineffective letdowns. She helped me make a plan when my son started to refuse the breast. She kept track of my sons weight and was the constant support I needed. She makes you feel so comfortable and is so easy to talk to. Thanks for helping me reach my goals, I never thought I’d get here. I can proudly say Ive been EBF for 6 months now. You’re amazing Sandra!”
