Are you struggling to make breastfeeding work?
Maybe you already got breastfeeding off to a great start, but you’re hitting some roadblocks. You want your breastfeeding journey to be joyful, easy, and just not that big a deal—because this is the way your nourish your baby—but you're not sure how to get there.
Many lactation consultants are managing positioning at the breast and milk production, but not much else. They are referring patients out to Speech Language Pathologists or Occupational Therapists who don’t have any training in habilitating infant oral function. And they don’t understand the dynamic of the breastfeeding relationship between a mom and her baby. Today’s breastfeeding issues are complex, whether it be due to tongue tie, food intolerances and allergies, neurodevelopmental issues and more. Over 80% of new mothers initiate breastfeeding, but without highly specialized support and care, the majority of them do not reach their breastfeeding goals. Jacqueline has an excellent track record of patients exclusively breastfeeding until 6 months of age (and continuing on once solid foods are introduced), managing proper infant weight gain with individualized feeding plans, treating infant feeding disfunction due to tongue tie, and ensuring healthy milk production for mothers.
From Erin Webster:
“As first time parents we had no idea any of the challenges of breastfeeding, but it was as our goal to do our best. The beginning seemed so difficult and our pediatrician told us to give up and to give formula. Everything seemed so bleak. One single visit to Holistic Lactation turned everything around. We actually were doing a decent job, our son had no issues (no ties, latch issues, etc.)...everyone had told us very discouraging things before Jacqueline came along. She showed us how to do things a little easier and more naturally, giving me much needed confidence every step of the way! I am not saying breastfeeding is easy, but Jacqueline helped me in so many ways and even helped my husband realize his important role in supporting our breastfeeding journey. We are 9 months strong today and I attribute the bulk of our success to Jacqueline. Our son is amazing and thriving on breastmilk with two parents working full time. It's more than doable with the right tools and they help you so you can handle any situation. We only had an opportunity to go twice, but the assistance she provided in just two visits made our journey successful! Ty, Jacqueline!!!! I am eternally grateful!”
