Patient Review

My family had a great experience. Amber was very knowledgeable, patient, responsive, and understanding! We had several hurdles throughout our journey and she helped us through them all with other resources, tips and tricks, techniques, all the things! We are still breastfeeding today because of the things she helped us with and I am so grateful for the experience. I would definitely use an IBCLC again in the future if needed and Amber would be my choice!- Danny
