I am so relieved a friend referred me to Erin after I had my son. He was four weeks old and hadn't latched before I contacted Erin. Previous to contacting Erin, I thought I had tried everything - we had his tongue clipped for a posterior tongue tie, I had been having weekly appointments with the LC's at the clinic as well as attending weekly doctor appointments at the Breastfeeding clinic. I was exhausted with the conflicting advice I was getting from everyone and was frustrated hearing that my son might just not be successful at a latch. After connecting with Erin, my son latched within days of implementing some of her tips. Her support and guidance when his latch started out shallow was amazing and she was always there when I needed some advice. By six weeks we had it down and he is a thriving breastfed baby today. - C.M.
"Erin helped me establish dual breastfeeding as I had twins...as a result I breastfed the twins until 13 months." - S.B.
"I have you to thank for all the support! Without you, I seriously doubt my stubbornness would have kept us going this long. It just goes to show just how much support is truly needed as far as breastfeeding goes, and also what a wonderful gift you are giving to our community. Thank you Erin, for always being there to answer my questions, offer support and information, and giving me confidence in my decisions as a mother. I truly enjoy breastfeeding and am so glad I was able to stick it out to get to this point." - A.R.
