What clients say

  • When things aren’t working quite right, there can be so much emotion around feeding your child – after all isn’t it supposed to be natural? I came to Carrie postpartum, after having seen two lactation consultants in hospital feeling confused. Carrie instantly put me at ease. She actively listened when explained I would like to breast feed but the pain was unbearable. We came up with a plan that worked for my baby and myself. It took into account my desire to give her my milk but also making it an enjoyable experience for us both.

    What I appreciated most about working with Carrie was her gentle approach and vast knowledge in the area of feeding. This was this second time I worked with Carrie the first because my son refused to eat anything. She is well connected to the latest approaches and medical professionals, which was a comfort to my husband and I. You can have confidence that Carrie will provide you with effective solutions to your feeding challenges and work with you and your child for the best outcomes for all. When issues come up she takes them in stride and adjusts the plan – having her calming influence is invaluable.
