As a first time mom, everything in my life was turned on its head; my body was in physical pain after giving birth, I hadn’t slept in days and most overwhelming of all was this new little life that my husband and I were responsible for taking care of. One of my greatest stressors was breastfeeding. I was particularly concerned because I had had breast reduction surgery and did not know if my tissue was going to be able to produce and deliver enough milk. Thankfully Jenn showed up a few days after the birth and she worked with us on our latch and helped me through a painful engorgement. She also answered all my questions (about how frequently to feed, pumping, baby weight gain etc. to how incorporate bottles and pacifiers). Then she wrote up a personalized care plan for us so that I could refer back to her instructions. Even better, after each visit, she followed up to make sure baby and mama were okay. Jenn’s energy is open, warm and happy and she put our whole family at ease. I felt incredibly supported and the challenge of breastfeeding has been successfully met!
