Client Testimonials for Lin Cook

Post a testimonial for Lin Cook



Lin was beyond helpful throughout my pregnancy and after. I originally hired her as my doula, then took the Bradley birth course with her, newborn care class and currently still use her as my lactation consultant. I had the most perfect natural, unmedicated birth thanks to her support and guidance. I highly recommend her for all your pregnancy and lactation needs. She really is a mother’s helper!
