• What others have to say •
To say I have appreciated Kylie’s expertise would be a grave understatement. I contacted her on the advice of another lactation consultant when my newborn was 7 days old. Two days later we were meeting in person in the comfort of my own home to do an assessment. From the moment I met Kylie, she was warm, extremely knowledgeable, and empowering. I was so grateful to be working with someone who kept me motivated (but not pressured) on the ever-so-challenging journey of breastfeeding. She took time to listen to my concerns and was supportive in her advice. Kylie spent ample time with me, made sure to follow up by email (with videos, recommendations, and follow up plan), and even took the time to check-in by telephone in between our scheduled follow up. To be honest, I have no idea how she does it. I know she must be busy but she never once let me feel like I was a burden and was always bang on with what I needed to hear on each of our encounters. Kylie and I have met three times in total over the course of 3.5 months. The information and support I received has been life changing; I am now exclusively breastfeeding AND getting a full nights sleep. Kylie you are a miracle worker; ‘thank you’ will never be enough!

"While in the NICU with my twin boys, born premature at 33 weeks, I knew I was going to need help once I took them home, especially with breastfeeding. They had difficulty feeding due to their prematurity and didn't latch well. Kylie was available for us from the very beginning, helping not only to establish breastfeeding but also with advice for new and overwhelmed parents of twins. I had problems with thrush and she was knowledgeable regarding treatment as well as when it was appropriate to access medical attention. Without Kylie's support, I don't believe I would have persisted in my efforts to breastfeed and due to my early success, I am still breastfeeding my twins at 14 months. Kylie has been an invaluable resource and an incredible source of support."
