TESTIMONIALS

“I contacted Debra for support with breastfeeding for my son. She worked with us and within a couple of hours my baby was latching well. Debra explained different positions and provided additional online resources for after she left. By the time Debra left, baby and I were successfully breastfeeding. Debra continued to follow-up un-invasively on the days afterwards, which was unexpected but greatly appreciated.

I cannot speak highly enough of Debra and strongly recommend her.”

"Debra came to visit at the hospital and coached me through my struggles with breastfeeding. I was at my wit’s end and she gave me practical tips and gentle guidance when I felt I couldn't breastfeed."

 

Grace

"Debra was a source of ongoing postpartum support – helping us deal with the challenges of having a newborn baby and challenges with breastfeeding. I truly believe that Debra’s assistance and encouragement helped me persevere and eventually thrive with breastfeeding."
