“I consulted Steph during the first two weeks postpartum for nursing support. This was my second baby and I had a lot of trouble with clogged ducts with my first and was determined to find GOOD help this time should I need it. In the second week postpartum I was in a lot of pain and could barely handle my baby latching. I called Steph and she came right over to my house, spent hours with me and baby as we worked on baby’s latch and my engorgement. She was so kind and patient and truly an expert on dealing with such an important matter as feeding your new baby. She honestly saved me that day. I don’t know if I would be nursing today (now 5 weeks postpartum) and pain free. She has also advised me over the phone multiple times about when to worry and what is normal-which every new mom needs! She has the advice I so desperately needed with my first baby and the expertise to fix difficult and serious  breastfeeding problems. Love you Steph!” -S.P.
