Testimonial for Jenny Gillespie

Like many new mothers, I had breasfeeding difficulties but desperately wanted to continue breastfeeding. After moving states with my 2 week old, I contacted Jenny in a panic as my son was not gaining weight well and my milk supply was low. With all honesty, Jenny saved breastfeeding for the two of us. She immediately saw a latch problem, correctly diagnosed a tongue/lip tie, (all of which had been missed by a previous lactation consultant) and taugh me ways to help my son feed with breastmilk and gain weight while we worked on the breasfeeding. I met with Jenny at 3 weeks and by 8 weeks, I was done with the nipple shield, his lip/tongue ties were repaired, he was latching correctly, and finally gaining weight well. My son is now 4 months old, has doubled his birthweight, and I have a freezer full of milk. Given her expertise as a Doula she completely understands the mother's complexities in the postpartum stage and the mother/baby dynamic which adds to her effectiveness. I can not thank her enough. I was ready to throw in the towel with breastfeeding, was emotionally a wreck and she helped me back from a very difficult place. My husband would say to me "what would Jenny say?" when I started to have my doubts. Jenny is a kind, funny, and smart person. I loved working with her and would strongly recommend her to anyone looking for a Doula or LC.
