My wife and I are first time parents and we worked with Izzy as a Post-Partum Doula, however she became so much more to us. In fact she's almost like family now and we're sad that our time with her is coming to an end.
She was absolutely WONDERFUL to work with and her skills as a Lactation Consultant really got us through the trying first few weeks. I did not appreciate how complicated lactation and latching and the whole world of breast feeding is and now I have a newfound appreciation for my amazing wife.
Working with Izzy gave us access to our own personal lactation consultant who could observe the latch, adjust the ergonomics, and demonstrate various breast feeding positions. She also showed us how to use the different tools invovled with supplemental nursing systems and how to store and utilize breast milk.
Most importantly she provided an oral assessment for our baby and helped us through the process of learning about his lip and tongue tie as well as locating an expert pediatric dentist to treat them. This was the source of many of our breast feeding problems and we woudln't have been able to solve them without Izzy. The lip and tongue ties were missed by our pediatrician and two other lacatation consultants we visited. She also provided many resources along the way to show that her info was up to date and explained why these subtle ties can be missed by other experts.
After we had the ties treated, the majority of our breast feeding issues resolved!
On top of her expertise in lacation, she's amazingly warm and nurturing and caring and was a pleasure to be around. Sometimes we found ourselves chatting with her instead of getting much needed sleep because we simply enjoyed her company so much
We're so grateful we had Izzy in our life during this time in our lives. We couldn't have gotten through it with her.
