My first experience with Janet was a little over four years ago when I had given birth to my oldest son. I was a first time, scared mom who really wanted breastfeed… I had no idea what I was doing. She was compassionate, patient, and supportive. She continued to offer encouragement throughout our nursing journey for 2.5 years, all the while being one of the few supporters of extended nursing/ nursing through pregnancy. Along came son number two and her support through his nursing journey has been phenomenal. He had a “tongue-tie” and we had a revision done to support an optimal breastfeeding journey. She appropriately assessed, referred, and assisted with follow up care to this day, he’s currently 2 years old and her support has not wavered. On any given day, I know if I need any support, she will be there. Her support has been a game-changer for my boys’ lives, and my life as a mother.
Jessica has been amazing for my son and I. He was lip/tongue-tied and I had nerve damage from my other children. She was able to give me hope, encouragement, and strength to get through the tough situation we were going through. She listened to my concerns and addressed them fully. Jessica always made sure I was comfortable doing the exercises and stretches my baby needed. The one on one time she spent making sure not the only baby was okay but that I was okay physically and mentally showed how compassionate she has for her clients and career. Over the past 5 years and 3 children, Jessica has been a constant source of love, knowledge, and professionalism. She continues to raise the bar of support and awareness of nursing mothers to develop an amazing bond and insure the health benefits only a mother can provide.
