Grace was our lactation counselor when my newborn rejected breastfeeding after we had to supplement with a bottle. Grace was able to come help us immediately, which was so critical at that early stage when every hour seems like a struggle. She was patient and reassuring and knowledgeable. She gave us the courage to not give up and she was right. Much faster than we expected, our daughter began breastfeeding again. We relied on her for all of our feeding questions and concerns and are finally able to enjoy and breastfeeding because of her tremendous help.
Grace came in and showed both Zoe and I the proper latch. I was able to breast feed for three months and that's three months longer than I have ever breastfed. Zoe is now 3.5 months and I will continue to rave about Grace. She is knowledgeable and yet does not beat you over the head with all that she knows. She is very personable and she gets it! She does not step on toes. She is able to navigate the hormonal relationships she meets on the pre and post pregnancy journey...and that's a gift!
