Testimonial for Leah Garner

My first child was born in 2013, and I wasn't able to successfully breastfeed himfor a variety of reasons. When we found out we were pregnant and THEN found out we were having twins, I especially wanted to make sure that breastfeeding would go well. We were referred to Leah by a friend, and I am so glad that we were able to get her help.  We worked with her as our lactation consultant, as we didn't need birthing help or guidance.

Leah came to our house to meet myself, my husband, and our toddler, for an initial session. She came with a lot of GREAT questions for us regarding my first pregnancy and breastfeeding experience, the home and work environment for myself and my husband, the attitude and energy of our toddler. Her questions for *US* showed that she knew a lot of the complications and factors that arise when having a baby, especially when there is an older child in the house. She was very professional and clearly educated and experienced regarding breastfeeding. At that initial meeting she was already giving us ideas of things we could do to prepare and help ensure that nursing the twins would be a success.

The twins were born in August 2015, and Leah came to our house a couple days after we got home from the hospital to make sure that breastfeeding was going well and to help me with tips and tricks. She helped me remember how to check their latches, gave me ideas for alternate positions to hold them in, and helped find ways to make tandem nursing more comfortable for me. Each visit she arrived on time, was good company, and a professional caregiver as she helped with nursing tips and tricks. She helped me evaluate my pump parts, and confirmed I would need a different flange size to make pumping more efficient.  She has even answered questions via email between visits.  The boys have been nursing like champs, and I give Leah TONS of credit for our success!
