"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."
"Very professional, approachable, and educational experience for me and my wife. Don't waste your time anywhere else."
"When I first started this class, I felt very uncomfortable about breastfeeding. I was surprised how easy it seems with the right attitude and coaching. I am glad I learned everything I did and very glad that my husband could join me. I highly recommend Abbie, and I do recommend her every chance that I get. Knowledge is power, and I feel more and more knowledgeable after each class I attend of Abbie’s."
"Abbie's breastfeeding class far exceeded my expectations. Coming into the class I felt like I had basic understanding and knowledge of breastfeeding, but I couldn't have been more wrong. She went above and beyond, gave me so much information that not only increased my foundation of knowledge, but helped increase my confidence in my ability to breastfeed. I felt very well supported - she approached each topic with a very open mind and gave me the evidence behind the science, which I could use to support my own values. She was able to answer all of my questions well. Overall, I highly recommend. Signed up for her Lamaze class as soon as our first class was over! "
"My partner and I took a private lactation class with Abbie and we are so thankful we did! We both felt very “at home” and comfortable throughout the entire class. From Abbie’s welcoming personality to all of the invaluable information we received the class was so helpful! The material was presented in a well thought out format with tons of take home resources provided.
Abbie is great at what she does and we would highly recommend her to others. If you’re not sure about taking one of her classes, do it!! You will be so happy you did!"
