"My visit with Anna truly exceeded my expectations. I really desperately needed support, as I had two kids under 2, was breastfeeding for two month not knowing what I was doing, and feeling no confidence because I never had a lactation consult in the hospital and I pumped with my first baby. My concerns arose when baby started sleeping overnight and feedings seemed difficult and all over the place. I worried if baby was getting enough and if my supply was ok. Anna seems like she is truly meant to do her job, truly loves it, and has a passion for it. The time she spent with me, her patience and calming demeanor was so appreciated and needed. She answered every question I could think of and gave me piece of mind and a plan to follow. Breastfeeding is not easy and as babies develop, feedings begin to look different, and you have to divide your attention between children. However, Anna is exactly the support that I was looking for and it was such a sigh of relief. I look forward to following up with her. Thank you, Anna!"

"We found out that our daughter has a tongue tie shortly after birth. In the beginning, she seemed to be latching ok and feeding well. However, this quickly changed and we noticed she didn't seem to be getting a fullf feeding and I was in a lot of pain from her shallow latch. Dana did a thorough evaluation and provided me with numerous resources and tips. We created a plan together and she made sure to answer all my questions. I feel relieved knowing I will have Dana's support while we navigate our daughter's tongue tie release."

"Anna was exceptional. She spent so much time talking to us about our experiences with breastfeeding as well as birthing our daughter, and really took time to listen to our journey getting through the first few days of feedings, concerns and challenges. We loved the weighted feed; I appreciated that she walked me through pumping and she spent time answering all our questions. We learned a lot about feeding positions, the use of bottles and pacifiers, the use of our pump, and best practices to avoid oversupply, mastitis, undersupply, and lots of other info that was SO helpful and immediately applicable. It was above and beyond what I could have expected - THANK YOU ANNA! You saved this mama's sanity (and nipples!)

"I was really frustrated knowing my son was capable of nursing and that I could produce milk, but him not ever seeming to eat a full meal and most feeding sessions being a fight. I knew something was not right and that feeding every two hours like the doctor wanted was not sustainable or helping. Dana validated my concerns and made me feel sane again confirming my suspicion that there was a larger, but fixable, issue causing feeding trouble. I also felt much better when Dana weighed the baby before and after feeding to confirm that he was in fact extracting milk from the breast since my son seems to eat very slowly and it is often hard to tell if he is still hungry."

"When I was at the hospital, I was very disappointed and frustrated with the lactation consultant on call as she made me feel guilty about giving my newborn formula and introducing bottle feeding so early. Thus, I was a bit nervous to meet Dana, considering my previous experience. Luckily, my experience with Dana was the complete opposite of my in-hospital encounter. Dana was patient, reassuring, and even provided me with a reason behind my newborn's inability to latch properly, a possible tongue tie and lip tie. Not one person offered details previously regarding these issues and next steps for getting a true diagnosis and treatment. I plan to follow up with a pediatric dentist and get additional support. I am grateful to Dana for her patience and support as my newborn and I continue to work through our breastfeeding issues to make sure that both mother and child are healthy and that my newborn is getting enough to eat and growing."

"Dana was a lifesaver and made me feel so much better when my baby was slow to gain weight. She noticed a tongue tie on my son and was able to provide recommendations for a pediatric dentist to clip that tie that same visit. We had the tie clipped two days later and nursing and weight gain has gone so much better! Dana's calm demeanor and wealth of information were both so appreciated and I am forever grateful!"
-- Erin, Hillsborough (10/2017)
"Dana was, as my husband put it, "The sun at the end of the tunnel." After failing to breastfeed our first child and depending on formula to feed her, when our second child arrived, we were adamant in not allowing ourselves to be easily discouraged by medical professionals and repeat history. As we watched our son struggle to breastfeed only four days after being born, my husband found Dana's services. By some miracle of God, she was available the day we called, arrived and within the hour, evaluated the possible issues and solutions for our situation. We were left feeling pure relief and gratitude for her expertise and kindness in wanting to assist us. Today, only a few days after meeting with her, my son has been diagnosed and treated for tongue tie and is latching better and better every breastfeeding session. Dana was a godsend for our family, we will forever be grateful for her skillset and will forever recommend her services to all who might be feeling as helpless as we were."

"My experience was AMAZING! It was a rought first night home getting my newborn to latch. I didn't have trouble at the hospital but as soon as we got home, I found both my son and I getting frustrated quickly. Finally, after hours of screaming the first night home, I went online to look for someone to help. I emailed Branchburg Lactation at 3am and was contacted just hours later the next morning. Dana came by and we had a positive, helpful, stress-free session where she worked with my son and me to figure things out. She is thorough and professional, in a warm and easy to talk to manner. Any that is having questions, doubts, or just looking for reassurance that you are doing things right - you will not be disappointed."

"I was fairly anxious about this visit -- because it's difficult for me to ask for help, I didn't want to feel pressured about breastfeeding being the "only way," and I didn't know what the response to my concerns would be. I was 100% immediately at ease with Dana. Dana provided objective information, her opinion when appropriate, incredibly positive support, and a solid plan for moving forward. For much of motherhood, as a first-time mother with a history of worrying, I have felt like whatever it is that's "wrong" is my fault. After this visit, I felt empowered and confident. What a welcome -- and long overdue -- relief! I'm so grateful I made this decision to finally reach out for help."

"Dana helped me 2 years ago when I was having a lot of pain breastfeeding my son. She was able to detect a potential lip tie and pointed me in the direction of a pediatric dentist. The dentist corrected the lip tie and my nursing become pain free. So when nursing my newborn twins suddenly become painful after two weeks, I immediately called Dana. She ruled out any latch issues and recommended I seek treatment from my doctor for a nipple infection. My doctor confirmed this and I am currently being treated. My pain is already going away and I am able to continue nursing. I wouldn't have been able to keep breastfeeding both times without Dana's help in addressing the problem. I would recommend her to anyone experiencing difficulty with breastfeeding."
-- Becky, Stockton (11/2016)
"Our newborn son was having a lot of trouble with breastfeeding in the hospital and at home. It was frustrating for him and for us (his parents). We had amazing nurses and numerous lactation consultations at the hospital which were helpful, but none of them were as helpful and productive, nor put us at ease, like our visit from Dana. Her positive demeanor and thoughtful advice and encouragement was exactly what we needed. Thanks, Dana!"
-- Lauren and Pete, Montville (9/2016)

"Dana is a wonderful teacher and coach when it comes to breastfeeding. She helped instill confidence in me that my little one is latching adn getting the hang of feeding. She showed me simple ways to identify a good latch and easy techniques to ensure my baby isn't 'falling asleep at the wheel.' After just one session, I already feel more confident and able to provide my baby a positive, less stressed eating environment."

"I am so happy that I reached out to Dana last week when my daughter was a week old, due to the difficulty I had getting my daughter latched on after my milk came in. It was heartbreaking at first, because I wanted that bonding time with my daughter and I didn't want to resort to solely pumping. Dana was extremely professional, compassionate and very easy to talk to. She allowed my sister to videotape the session so that my husband was able to watch and learn ways to support me. Dana doesn't rush the learning process for mom or baby and she is extremely knowledgeable about techniques for success. She suggested a nipple shield as a good transitional tool from the bottle my daughter was getting used to and the breast. It has worked wonders! Dana also offered to come back this week because I felt my daughter may not be getting enough milk with the use of the shield. Dana was able to determine that she was by using a special scale and giving me more suggestions on keeping her awake during the feedings and feeding her more frequently if necessary. She gave me tips for when my daughter is cranky and not necessarily hungry. Dana was also able to provide me guidance on laryngeal stridor which she said my daughter may have due to her squeakiness during feedings. After my husband and I read more, we too think she may have it. Again, this shows Dana's expertise. Overall, I would highly recommend Dana! I will be emailing and calling her in the future when I have questions or concerns. I would not hesitate to make another in home appointment if needed."

"When I learned in the hospital that my newborn was tongue-tied, I was worried that we would have major problems with our breastfeeding relationship. I consulted with Dana following the frenotomy procedure and our meeting was so reassuring. She did a weighted feeding to determine that my son was transferring milk well in sufficient amounts, evaluated his latch and gave me some tips on how to improve it as well as some contacts for craniosacral therapy should I decide to go that route."
