"When my first child was born, I believed I was prepared for the challenge of breastfeeding. Once my daughter arrived, I struggled significantly. She started losing weight to the point that our pediatrician began insisting we use formula but I was determined to nurse my child. After nearly a week of unsuccessful attempts, during which I mechanically expressed my milk to feed my daughter, I called Alison for help. She was incredibly supportive and not at all judgmental. Her demeanor was relaxed and confident. By Alison demonstrating some techniques, I was finally able to put into practice the steps I’d read about and studied. During that night feeding, I used what Alison had taught and demonstrated to me and finally was able to help my daughter latch. We never had to supplement with formula, my daughter gained all her weight back, and is an all-around healthy child. I can never thank Alison enough for her calm support which led to this success story." -Sarah E.
