TESTIMONIALS

"I first used Abbie’s services in 2021 when four other LC’s failed to meet my needs. Her services were immediately distinguishable as high quality, thorough, professional, and well-informed. My first lactation was fraught with challenges, and although I made my goal of 12-months, I never developed that special breastfeeding bond with my son. When I found out I was pregnant with my second, I’m pretty sure I contacted Abbie the very next day with a big, “HELP ME!” We scheduled a prenatal visit that gave me all the education I needed to feel confident. I was a strong self-advocate in the hospital for myself and baby, and our golden (two) hours were absolutely surreal. I messaged with Abbie from the time my daughter was born until we had our initial postpartum visit, and she always responded promptly with information that was helpful, informative, and calmed my nerves. I was particularly concerned about oral restrictions because my son had needed a posterior tongue tie release. I was probably overzealous to just blame any little hiccup on a suspected tongue tie, but Abbie’s examination of the anatomy of my daughter’s mouth coupled with a thorough analysis of function led us to pursue other things (like OMM), and all the hiccups resolved without a release. As a medical professional myself, I was astounded by the exhaustive and detailed examination that Abbie performed. There was no doubt that this was someone with immense education and experience, and the ability to apply it to our unique needs. Another amazing thing is that Abbie pays the utmost attention to hygiene, cleaning and disinfecting her hands and tools multiple times each session. That matters so much when you’re clutching this immune naive newborn to your chest, wanting to protect her from any harm. My daughter and I developed such a close relationship through breastfeeding. It’s everything I ever dreamed of and all the goodness I never knew I needed. I have put in a ton of work to have a successful lactation, but it was Abbie who not only directed me to the right door but gave me the key to open it. I am forever grateful, and I tell basically anyone who will listen to call her for help! You will not regret it."

"Abbie was so kind, gentle, full of positive energy, understood any concerns I had, very knowledgeable, answered every question perfectly, and made me more confident after each visit. She brought props to help understand visually and the scale was amazing to help me understand that baby was indeed getting milk. 
She allowed as much time as I needed during the visit and didn’t rush anything. Her attitude was so positive compared to the previous help I received. I’m so glad we found her!!!

It’s just amazing that I started out not thinking I could nurse baby, and was going to exclusively pump again. Once I found Abbie, my goal was to nurse baby 100% but I kind of gave up for awhile and was nursing baby about 80% of the time and bottle feeding breastmilk/pumping 20% of the time. After our 3rd visit with Abbie, I knew I could do it. I am proud to say that I’m now nursing baby 100% of the time!! No more bottle feeding or pumping (unless there’s a need to)!! This gives me a little more time to spend with my family since I’m not washing so many bottles and pump parts! Yay!"

"I can't overstate how impressed I was with my in-person lactation consultation with Abbie. Not only were all of our latching issues resolved within days of my consultation but I felt armed with the knowledge and resources to help me feel much more confident in my breastfeeding journey. Abbie was communicative, took all the COVID pre-cautions we could have hoped for and more, and was absolutely warm, compassionate, and patient during the hours she spent on our consultation. While we were so impressed by her professionalism and knowledgeable care, it also felt as though she was a family friend with the way her heart was truly in it, wanting us to be successful and at ease. As a new mom, I was intimidated to get help and by the admin/coordination that it may require but all of that was alleviated by working with Abbie. I'd wholeheartedly recommend her to any mother/family without reservation."

"The support we received was excellent! Abbie was so kind, supportive, and helpful. I wasn’t sure how helpful a virtual visit was going to be, but I was in so much pain that I was willing to try it. She gave some helpful tips and now we are 5 months exclusively breastfeeding!"

"My baby was 30 days early and had a lot of trouble latching. I had been triple feeding for a month when I met Abbie, with each session taking 1-1.5 hours. I was ready to give up. Abbie was positive, encouraging, and supportive. She talked me off a ledge more than once, and gave me practical ways to work on my breastfeeding journey. Abbie is the reason I didn’t give up and I was exclusively breastfeeding just a few weeks after my first consultation. Her encouragement and transitional suggestions saved us. So glad we stuck it out!"

Abbie is very good at what she does and passionate about it! I felt well taken care of.

Tranaya M.

"My consultation with Abbie was the best money we have spent towards our children's health. Breastfeeding is very challenging, but especially as a new twin mom we have struggled since day one. Abbie addressed all of our concerns, evaluated our babies very closely, made referrals, and worked with me on pumping/positioning. Everything she went over was super helpful and she was so professional. Would absolutely recommend her for any new mom or anyone having breastfeeding issues!"

Justine R.

"Abbie was helpful and reassuring with every single interaction. As a second time mom, I thought breastfeeding would be a breeze, but my baby had other plans. Abbie had great suggestions for home care and next steps. Her guidance was honestly life changing for us. She is knowledgeable, personable, communicates quickly which is extremely important when working on breastfeeding."

Miranda M.

"After struggling with my breastfeeding relationship with my oldest child, I was very nervous and unsure of my ability to establish a good breastfeeding relationship with my second child. After a less-than-stellar appointment with another lactation consultant, I reached out to Abbie. She came to my home the next day, and thoroughly and compassionately listened to my struggles and answered all of my questions. By the end of our consultation, I was feeling exponentially more confident about my ability to successfully breastfeed. Abbie provided me with some great resource that I could review that were specific to my concerns and questions. Since our consultation, I have contacted her a few times with additional questions, and she always responds promptly and with valuable information and useful resources. My baby is now 3 months old, and is still nursing wonderfully! I would recommend Abbie to anyone who is struggling with breastfeeding. She was a tremendous help to us!"

Courtney I.

"Abbie was so great to work with. This was a truly invaluable experience. I was so much more confident with breastfeeding after my daughter was born because of everything I learned from Abbie. The continued support throughout my breastfeeding journey were fantastic too. Abbie helped me keep going and gave me great advice, especially when I struggled with low supply in the beginning and with every new challenge that came up along the way. Highly recommend Abbie Mullins for breastfeeding support and education."
