Testimonial for Lea Azevedo

I was exclusively pumping for my 7 week old baby as she was never able to latch. After seeing 2 different lactation consultants my baby wasn't able to latch during the consultation and I was told that because she was a premie she would take longer than your "average" baby. I suspected she had a lip tie but no one validated it. Long story short I got very tired of pumping on the clock and decided to give it quits, but the next day I thought I'd try one more lactation consultant to see if I could get any help. That's when I came across Lea. Within days she was able to fit me into her schedule. I had low expectations from seeing the other 2 LC, but I thought why not? Quitting was not something my heart wanted to do but I was mentally and physically exhausted. She came over for the appointment and wow, as soon as she walked into my door I felt like I had a friend who I could talk to and I felt heard. Moms already go through so much after giving birth that I felt such a relief having someone like her! We sat down and she asked me questions about my frustrations and again I felt HEARD! The appointment didn't feel like business it felt more like I was talking to a friend about motherhood! After the initial conversation, I got baby girl and she explained to me step by step on how I could make her latch, she showed me and within 5 minutes my baby latched!!!! I couldn't believe it! Then when my baby unlatched she asked me to do it myself, and I loved that because it's one thing for you to have a professional place the baby for you, but it's another when they leave and you're on your own, so she wanted to make sure that I knew what to do. She gave me all the tips and tricks and I felt super confident! My baby is breastfeeding beautifully and I couldn't thank Lea enough. I don't feel as overwhelmed as I did before and when I try for my second baby, I definitely want to have her as part of my birth team! I wish she could come over everyday!
