 Rebecca is beyond amazing. Because of her gentle guidance, uplifting encouragement, and wealth of knowledge, I had the help I needed to exclusively nurse my third baby for a whole year! I never thought I would be able to achieve this accomplishment as I was unable to nurse my first two babies. I saw Rebecca a few days after my third baby's birth and saw her throughout the year. She showed me what it really meant to get a "deep latch" within the comfort of my home. She was always helpful and up to date on the most recent research of nursing/breastfeeding. If you have any need or questions about lactation, she is the best resource in BG. I am so thankful she was a part of our BF journey.

Having Rebecca as our IBCLC was truly such a great experience. She was really informative, professional and caring. Her kind demeanor and expertise in lactation working with my premature twins really made all the difference for me! We had latching issues and to be honest, it wasn’t until I got a good nursing session with my twin A, that I got to bond with her for the first time! (That oxytocin, am I right!?) I’m so thankful for all the help and support that Rebecca was able to provide for us. She truly is the best resource during the first several weeks with your little one! I’m honestly going to miss our lactation sessions!

Rebecca was a huge help in getting my baby deeper and giving clear tips for working on getting him to “loosen up.” She gave us advice for a technique I’d never heard of despite it being my third baby and myself working in the OB field. She is very patient and gentle and down to earth and professional. She also sent me a link that was very quick and easy for verifying insurance coverage and taking care of that step for me. I recommend her to any mother/baby.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Rebecca. My daughter and I had an extremely difficult breastfeeding journey and Rebecca never gave up on us. She was so encouraging and easy to communicate with at any time. I truly don't believe my daughter and I would be breastfeeding today if it weren't for Rebecca's help. We are forever grateful!!
