Shelly is fantastic, so helpful and knowledgeable. As a first-time mother, I needed all the tips and tricks I could get. She provided help with latching, sore nipples, exercises to promote easier positioning, how to burp and also how to calm her down. She was so very helpful in our appointment and also online. Would highly recommend and look forward to staying in touch with Shelly through her other classes and consultations as we continue our BF journey.
Working with Shelly was something I wish I had done sooner. Our Son was having issues with gaining weight he wasn't getting adequate milk by breastfeeding. Shelly identified that he had a tongue tie as soon as she took a look at him. Not only did she provide us with super helpful tips & exercises to do with him, she also referred us to amazing providers that gave him the proper care he needed. As first time parents, this was something we had never heard of and quite scary. She made us feel at ease and encouraged us. I used to dread breastfeeding because my son would cry the whole time,Shelly gave me suggestions on how to reconnect with my son and now I look forward to nurse him every time! If you are looking for a lactation consultant, look no further...you will be in GREAT hands with Shelly!!
Shelly is so intuitive and informed, she was practically like a mind-reader. She was able to accurately guess things like my baby had hiccups and was gassy, all based on her examination. She was calming and reassuring, all while helping us puzzle out some struggles we were having. She gave us exercises and a wealth of resources. Later when my little one started having new troubles, I reached out and she found time to come visit us right before my family had to leave for a trip. Again, her solutions and support helped set us back on track. She also patiently answered ALL of my emails and questions during each 2 week consult period. Highly recommend!
