Helps you reach YOUR own breastfeeding goals

“After coming home with my newborn and not being able to get her to latch, I called Angela trying not to panic. She came worked with me on a plan to help me and my baby. Her friendliness put me at ease – something this anxious mama really needed. Her knowledge base is strong – I really appreciated that she has a nursing background in addition to being a lactation consultant and a mom of three! What I really appreciated overall is that she spoke to me from the ‘real world’ and shared information that would help me become more intuitive about my baby as opposed to telling me only one ‘right way’ to do things.”

"Angela is a SAVIOUR! I was close to throwing in the breastfeeding towel because of sore, damaged nipples when my husband called Angela to make a home visit. Within hours she was coaching me on proper latching techniques. In what seemed like five minutes, ANGELA HAD MAGICALLY SOLVED MY PROBLEM! It was a night and day change. Breastfeeding for me is now a very pleasurable experience due to her help. I can't say enough good things about her. Her easy-going and friendly manner complement her skill and knowledge. It was the best investment I have ever made in my life."
