Denise is amazing! Her support and expertise got us through an incredibly bumpy start to breastfeeding (NICU, latch challenges, low supply, tongue tie—we had it all). There is no way we would have made it through that time and continued to breastfeed without her! She’s not only a responsive, super-helpful expert resource but also incredibly empathetic and kind, which was so needed during such a vulnerable and stressful time. Denise’s steady, kind guidance meant the world to us and we would highly recommend her!
