We are blessed to work with incredible parents who inspire us with their determination, grace and humor. Here are some of the kind things they've said about Laid Back Lactation.

One night, I was staring down at my baby’s face, about to give up on breastfeeding, feeling broken and like I had failed my child. My wife called a lactation consultant and that same night Elizabeth walked through the door. Her smile, humor and knowledge immediately gave me comfort that things would be ok. The thing I remember the most was her saying that it’s not all or nothing. Everyone’s breastfeeding journey is different and no matter how small or big your breastfeeding accomplishment was, she was always the best cheer leader at making you feel like you were her greatest accomplishment. Breastfeeding can sometimes be seen as something to be ashamed of or something that you hide. But Elizabeth gave me the gift of seeing it differently. It is truly a labor of love and through many struggles I breastfed my baby for 10 months, but it’s a connection to last a lifetime. I am forever thankful to Elizabeth for the love, support and pride she put into helping me create that special bond with my baby and I am proud of my breastfeeding journey.

As I reach the one year mark of my baby’s life and my nursing journey, I am reminded of how grateful I am for Elizabeth. She helped me and my baby learn how to nurse when it seemed impossible. Providing not only guidance, but a kind of love you need during one of the most emotional and difficult times at the start of motherhood. She is a best friend, a confidant, a motivator and becomes a part of your family. I owe so much of my baby’s health and happiness to Elizabeth’s commitment to helping us succeed with nursing. I would have a million babies if I knew she’d be there with me each time! Elizabeth is truly one of a kind!

Elizabeth is the main reason I was able to breastfeed my first daughter for 16 months. I was ready to give up multiple times, and each time, she had the perfect balance of support and respect for my own decision and encouragement and solutions to keep going. Elizabeth is helpful because she does not treat her clients as someone filling a time slot. They are mothers with babies who need her help. Her heart opens and absorbs the pain and hurt and provides assistance and support. I am forever grateful for her impact in my life.

Elizabeth is a boob whisperer! I met her when I was having nursing issues with my first child. Elizabeth quickly diagnosed me with oversupply and provided me with advice to help my situation. Many of my issues were resolved quickly. Elizabeth even helped me position my son correctly on my breast to help with his torticolis. When I had my second child, I knew I wanted Elizabeth on board early on regardless of whether I had nursing issues or not. She was able to determine that my little one had both a lip and tongue tie. I had no symptoms, but Elizabeth saw an issue and addressed it. She has been with me every step of the breast feeding process for both of my children. She’s a cheerleader, supportive friend, wise lactation consultant and mentor.

There truly aren’t enough superlatives to describe what an incredible lactation consultant and human being Elizabeth is! I first met Elizabeth after the birth of my daughter and, at that time, was experiencing intense pain during nursing. She was like a guardian angel that swooped in and completely changed my nursing experience and my journey into new motherhood. She shared her pearls of wisdom and emotional support as she identified and guided us through a tongue/upper lip tie revision, helped us navigate my daughter’s early issues with allergies, and carried us through challenging moments that I experienced while nursing a toddler. Elizabeth is more than just a brilliant lactation consultant, she is a trusted confidant, a devoted mother herself, and a selfless and loving friend. Breastfeeding and mother support is her passion, and she went above and beyond in ways I could not have imagined. I truly could not have made it through the experience of nursing and being a first time mom without her compassion, guidance, and care. Once you have worked with her, you will feel blessed and thankful that she was a part of your journey.

It would be impossible to put into words what an amazing support Elizabeth was throughout my breastfeeding journey. She met with me prior to delivery to ensure I had everything I needed and my pump was set up correctly. My second daughter was tongue tied, losing weight, and not latching after birth and she was at my house the day after I came home for assessment and put a plan into place for me to pump and feed her. She eased my fears and her confidence that we would get the baby back on the breast is what kept me going in those tough first days. Even though I doubted it would work, after my baby’s tongue was released she was breastfeeding like a champ. Thanks to Elizabeth’s unwavering support and encouragement from pregnancy on I was able to breastfeed my daughter exclusively for 9.5 months, even after I went back to work full time at 4 months. I weaned her right after she turned 1 and Elizabeth was there to walk me through it with compassion and zero judgment. She is truly one of the kindest, most selfless women I have ever met. When I say she is pro momma it is in every sense of the word. Truly a miracle worker.

It truly takes a village to not only raise a child but support a mother, especially when it comes to breastfeeding. When I left the hospital with my son, I felt overwhelmed due to a number of breastfeeding challenges. After I connected with Laid Back Lactation, I immediately received the care I needed to successfully nurse my son (and regain my sanity). Their expertise empowered me as a new mother.
