Do you remember my review and introduction to the BABEs?
Jessie was one of the mamas I worked with prenatally. She and her husband took childbirth classes with me and then asked me to stop over when labor got active. They are a delightful couple who have an adorable son. After birth, though, she encountered some breastfeeding hurdles that she wanted help with. She asked Leah and Misti to come over and help her and this is what she has to say - "One of the most important things for any nursing mother is to have a great support team. Breastfeeding can be difficult at times and lots of new moms may find themselves giving up if they feel like they're alone when an issue arises. It's great to know that the ladies of Bay Area Breastfeeding and Education(BABE) are around.
I recently encountered problems with my newborn not being able to nurse properly. He was latching and unlatching multiple times during our 3 hour nursing sessions. Yes, 3 hours! Needless to say, I was starting to reach my wits end.
To make matters worse, I unexpectedly had to return to work full time. I decided to call BABE. They met with me in the comfort of my own home and started to assess the situation. It wasn't an easy fix, but their dedication to figuring out the problem was incredible.
They encouraged me through texts and phone calls while they searched for answers. I really liked how they gave me lots of information and supported me in making my own decisions to come up with a routine that worked for me.
They helped educate me on maintaining my milk supply while being away from my baby and gave me info on suck training exercises to improve the efficiency our nursing sessions while we're together.
I can't thank them enough for their support and dedication."
