What Our Clients Say

“Amber was amazing. I experienced tremendous damage early in the process and she sat with me and listened to me cry about how difficult it all was. She worked with us and saved my nursing experience. 11 months later we are going strong!”

Melina Y., Washington D.C.

"I fully credit you for helping me establish and maintain a wonderful breastfeeding relationship with my now 15 week old daughter."

Lauren T., Falls Church, VA

“This was one of the most helpful things I've done. I feel much more empowered.”

E.L., Washington D.C.

"Without (you), I would have been lost. The consult and phone sessions... were invaluable. They have made my breastfeeding experience so much more enjoyable and really helped me along the path when I had concerns, pains, etc."

Alexis G., Washington, D.C.

“Thank you for all of your help.  T. is now 13 weeks and doing wonderful.  Breastfeeding has become so natural for both of us, and I know our success was because of your guidance.  Thank you for doing what you do!”

Kellyn H, Washington D.C.

"Amber was really the best thing to happen to our family after a difficult pregnancy and birth.  We really thought breastfeeding would come easy, and when it didn't, we were devastated.  Amber worked with us weekly for several weeks to help our baby learn to nurse and to help us support her while she learned.  We've now achieved our goal of exclusive breast feeding and it would not have been possible without Amber's support.  I really hope we won't encounter these problems again, but if we do, we know who to ask for help."

Mary.C., Washington D.C.

"Amber did an amazing job of supporting me and giving me information to help me have a successful breastfeeding relationship with my baby. My baby had a bad latch and my milk was not coming in on time. A horrible and depressing combination. Amber came to my home and did a thorough evaluation of me and my baby's latch. She made several recommendations and came back once a week  for 4 weeks to follow up. I can say without a doubt that without Amber's help, I would not have been able to continue breastfeeding. She was professional and supportive and kept my hopes up that things would improve. My baby is now gaining weight, feeding well and my milk supply is great."

Racquel A., Arlington, VA

"I'd always wanted to breastfeed, since I was young. I thought it would be easier than it was. I had my first child and had lots of problems with breastfeeding, was very depressed about that, and was ready to give up. Being a new mom, I was very shy about getting help with this, but you came and gave me one-on-one attention in the privacy of my own home. You helped me feel very comfortable, you showed me how to breastfeed, told me what I needed to know, and had the enthusiasm I needed to get over my discouragement. If I hadn't talked to you, I would have given up. As a result, breastfeeding has been great and I look forward to breastfeeding my next child!"

Shauna S., Laurel, M.D.

“Thank you for your wonderful support and patience.  Without you we would have probably gone crazy or simply quit trying to breastfeed.”

Luisa O., Arlington, VA

"You gave me such confidence!"

Stef A., Arlington, VA

“Thank you for all you did to start us off on a good course.  T. most recently weighed in at 11 lbs 1 oz-- a testament to your techniques and training!”

Jenni L, Washington D.C.

Laurel, MD

I wanted to thank you for your amazing work with us. We are happily breastfeeding exclusively and frankly you were amazing. I can still remember the pain and slight dread of breastfeeding the first few weeks, and with just one session you made it go away!

I really would not have been able to do it without your guidance. Thank you so much.

Natalia P., Washington D.C.

Alexis G., Washington, D.C.

"L. and I want to thank you for showing us the way—you are truly wonderful!. We can't thank you enough... We're so grateful. I hope other families know how lucky they are when you arrive at their door! We're all doing great. Both twins are (now) exclusively breastfeeding quickly and effectively during the day... and sleeping 4-5 hours between feedings at night! It's working! K. is 6 kg and L 5kg, big babies already."

Katja Z., Washington D.C.

"Amber offered invaluable breastfeeding support, advice, and encouragement through a painful infection. I was so discouraged that I thought about quitting, but because of Amber's patient assistance, nursing is now something my baby and I love."

Tiana P., Herndon, VA

"Thank you for the support that you gave to me and S. during our early weeks together. Your wise advice, couples with your calm and compassionate style, really helped us work out the kinks with breastfeeding. Seven months later, he is a chunky and happy little fellow, and still an "enthusiastic nurser." Thank you for giving us a great start!"

Ann W., Washington D.C.

Ann W., Washington D.C.

"I was at my wits end when I visited you with my second child who was not latching well last fall. After seven separate lactation consultations elsewhere—with few helpful results with my first child—I had low expectations for finding a solution with my second child. Based on my experience with other, overzealous lactation consultants, I was expecting it to be the same at your place. To my surprise, I found support, comfort, and a path forward the way I was happy with. I am still so thankful that Amber was able to help me. She is the reason I didn't stop when my son was two weeks old and the reason I was able to breastfeed my son for over a year now 🙂 Thank you again!"

Julie H., Washington D.C.

"Thank you so much for giving me a beautiful breastfeeding relationship with my daughter. It means the world to me and we could not have done it without you."

Raisa D., Herndon, VA

“Thank you so very much for helping me to work on our latch issues and talking me through the rough and painful days of engorgement.  You are so good at what you do--so caring, comforting, and knowledgeable.  We appreciate what you did for us so very much!  Things are much better with breastfeeding!”

Marisa K., Washington D.C.
