Jacquie was a godsend when our son was born. We were pretty clear we didn’t want many people around after his birth so we could spend time getting comfortable in our own little family unit. However, we didn’t know how exhausted we would be, or how many questions we would have! Jacquie stayed up with Arlo in the middle of the night to afford us some precious sleep. And she helped this new mama with baby basics like baby wearing, bathing and sleeping– without judgement or fanfare. She also naturally made sure the house was clean, healthy meals were made, and fresh water was always by my side. She is the kind of person who knows how to step in and help without a great deal of direction–never overstepping the line–just having a natural sense about what will be helpful in any situation.

Becoming a mother is a true miracle but also it is a big stress. Labor doesn’t always go smoothly and can be very traumatic for a mother and for a child. That’s why it’s very important to get right care and support in postpartum period. I am a mother of a preemie. And it was very hard for me not to loose my milk supply when my baby was at the NICU. When Jacquie started working with us my breastfeeding routine was very unorganized. I wasn’t producing enough milk, so I had to substitute with formula. And I was certain that it will always be like that. But Jacquie helped to believe that It is possible to stop using formula and get a good milk supply. She encouraged me to breastfeed more and use a bottle less, and not to give up when my daughter was getting fussy and didn’t want to latch. She was so used to a bottle already and also she was not strong enough to latch long enough. With Jacquie’s help I was able to achieve my goal as to breastfeed exclusively.
Also Jacquie was very helpful with finding right specialist for my daughter and for me. I wish I started using her help while I was pregnant. I could avoid many problems that way.
Jacquie is very professional and also caring person. She loves what she is doing and I think she really enjoys helping new moms. She provided me help and support that I really needed. Thank you very much for everything!!!
