Client Testimonials

Thais was a much needed support as we welcomed our 3rd. He experienced latching issues and she was a calm presence as we navigated finger feeding, to SNS - never pushing too hard such that he was able to latch in week 3 and has been nursing well since. Thais was considerate of our whole family’s needs, not just mom & baby, which has really set us up for success (even giving helpful suggestions for potty training our 3year old). I love that every night we started with a game plan conversation about how the night would go / any new challenges we were facing. Thank you,  Thais!
