“I had a wonderful experience with Christina. She was kind with a warm personality. I immediately felt comfortable with her. She was helpful and knowledgeable. She knew just how to help me and gave me clear instructions or tips to aide in breastfeeding my girl. After her visit, I was more confident in what I was doing and glad that I had sought her out. In addition, her support after via email was a huge help. Thank you Christina! I would recommend her in a heartbeat and I would see her again if needed!”

“I couldn’t recommend Christina more. She made herself available and came to me, was supportive and nonjudgemental and made me feel immediately comfortable. Christina calmed my anxiety several times: she continued to check in and help me with new issues that arose in the months after our initial meetings. Even when Christina was not scheduled to meet with me, she promptly replied to all of my emails, continuing to help me after and above and beyond what she was getting paid to do. I truly believe I am still happily breastfeeding 7 months in because of Christina’s support.”

“My husband and I met with Christina the day after we came home from the hospital since our daughter was losing more than the average amount of weight so we knew she wasn’t getting enough breast milk. We had planned to exclusively breast feed but gave her some formula in the hospital because of the weight issue. It worked out that Christina was available the day after we got home and she was so caring and supportive. She was very knowledgeable and was great about explaining everything in a calm and meaningful way (since there is so much to learn and so many different situations and possible issues for mom/baby). We really liked how she was able to answer our questions. She confirmed our daughter’s latch was good but was concerned about my milk supply ( since I had a C-section it could be delayed but if it didn’t improve in next few days I may have a low supply). Anyway, I ended up having a low milk supply so she gave lots of options and we ended up using the SNS, pumping, she went over supplements, reasons for low milk supply, etc. What was also great was being able to correspond through emails in between the 3 times we saw her and she was very detailed in answering our questions, giving advice, and then asking me questions to better understand and help. The situation was empowering because even though it was emotionally hard not being able to exclusively breastfeed (due to milk supply that was out of my control) we had the information and options to figure out what worked best for her and our family and was able to breast feed and give her the expressed milk as much as possible. We are very grateful we found Christina!”

“I just wanted to tell you that I made it a year of exclusively pumping! I think the last time we spoke, I was in tears and said I couldn’t do it anymore. I stuck it out, and I credit so much of your advice to my success in being able to give my son breastmilk his first year of life. Thank you so much for what you did for us. It wasn’t the breastfeeding journey I had imagined when I was pregnant, but we made it work thanks to you!”

“I contacted Christina 5 days after the birth of my first child, and it was the best decision I’ve made so far as a new mother. I had asked for help with breastfeeding from several different people (nurses, lactation specialists) in the hospital, and never received satisfactory assistance. Christina immediately identified the important challenges of breastfeeding for my infant and me, and helped me with a reasonable plan of action. Without her support, I don’t know how I would have reached my goal of exclusively breastfeeding my child.”

“Christina is very knowledgeable, empathetic, and kind. I really like how she suggests evidence based techniques, and patiently shares her deep knowledge of the topic. I was able to get an appointment immediately, and all my questions answered over email in a timely way.”

“Thank you, Christina, for your help, support, and expertise over the past few months. It’s been very reassuring to know that someone like yourself is in my corner, always ready and willing to help in person or via email. Thank you!”
