Hayley

Rebecca is incredible! Through her teaching and guidance I was able to not only accomplish my goal for breastfeeding, but learn some very valuable lessons from her. She is very knowledgeable and an expert in her field. 

She not only did visits to our home, but she also traveled with us to London when our daughter was 9 1/2 weeks. She made the trip so much easier with all of her help and expertise. We would gladly recommend her to anyone interested.

It is hard to express in words what Rebecca brought to our family after our sons birth. Throughout the process before he arrived Rebecca was a constant support and mentor to help these first time parents grasp and understand what was about to happen. The day we came home from the hospital Rebecca was there and as a first time mom she was not only loving, nurturing and caring she was my constant strength and number one supporter of my transition in being a new mom. The love and support she showed my husband and I was beyond words incredible. The most beautiful part is she has become not only our friend but also part of our forever family. When ever a friend announces they are pregnant the first thing I do is say “call Rebecca!!!”. Not only will I forever be grateful for all that she taught my husband and I about becoming first time parents but as a woman I will also cherish that bond that came from such a vulnerable and new time for becoming a mother.
