As a first time mom, I wanted to gather all the information that would allow me to make informed decisions about my pregnancy and, more specifically, labor. After doing some research it became clear that I wanted to have the support of a doula. After interviewing many doulas, I felt a special connection with Lori. My first impression of Lori was that she was warm, honest, down to earth, non-judgmental and with a lot of experience. All was confirmed. I am blessed for having Lori support me while I was pregnant, through labor and now as a lactation consultant.
Lori has been providing invaluable support as a lactation consultant. Breastfeeding really is a science, it is much more complex than one would think. Lori visited me at home after delivery to make sure I had the correct nursing positions and also to provide emotional support. With each of her visits I feel more confident. I have been very successful exclusively breastfeeding my now 8-week-old boy.
Lori has always been available to answer any questions I have regarding nursing, milk management and even newborn care. All I can say is that Lori made and is making the experience of being a new mother very enjoyable and smooth. She is fantastic and anyone that has her as a doula would say so.
