"After having successfully breastfed my first child, it didn’t occur to me that I would have trouble in this area with my second. I was so wrong! A bad latch and excruciating pain left me feeling so desperate for help and ready to quit. One session changed the game for us completely! I was able to get back on track and was even able to face a bad case of mastitis, something that would have totally defeated me before the consultation. This was one of the best decisions I made for baby and I because we are going strong with ease now!!!"- AD seen by Sheree Jernigan RN, IBCLC
"Great experience! Nicole was so helpful and great with babies. So nice having a one on one consultation in my house - very individualized help that wasn’t rushed at all" - Google Review
"I’ve had two fat, healthy, babies because I received the most help from this beautiful woman! I’m now able to tell when my babies aren’t latched correctly (benefits both mommy and baby) and even if baby is still hungry or not! If you’re needing help, don’t hesitate! Need a support system, she will give you everything she has!"- CP seen by Sheree Jernigan RN, IBCLC
"Nicole is beyond passionate about what she does. She is willing to help you in any way possible and makes it less stressful on mom. She will also work with the insurance company to make sure it gets covered if possible. She is very responsive and knowledge about breastfeeding and baby development in general. I would send her to all my breastfeeding friends if I could! Great experience! She has the gift of comforting others. She made me feel very safe." - Google Review
"Nicole is such an amazing momma and nursing supporter. She has gone above and beyond to help me with the issues I've had nursing my second. She's extremely knowledgeable and always seeking to increase her knowledge, which I appreciate so much. She is so encouraging and makes you feel like you're the best mom in the entire world. I highly recommend her! I have no complaints at all. :)" -Google Review
"Nicole was so great with me and my little one. I hired her when my son was 6 weeks old and we were trying to ween off of using nipple shields. She was great and helped us stop using them and giving us exercises to strengthen his jaw and latch. I highly recommend using Nicole if you are having breastfeeding struggles!" -Google Review
“When you're a new mother who is trying to breastfeed, the best thing you can have is a great partner and great support network. That being said- I want to tell you how amazing it was as having a 'breast'friend like Sheree. I wouldn't have been able to do it without this beautiful soul. You hear stories about how natural breastfeeding is and how it all works out but being sleep deprived with a hungry little newborn makes it seem hopeless sometimes. It wasn't with Sheree! I've never had a more positive cheerleader (not including my wonderful husband-lord knows he saved me) nor have I ever had a more positive coach to help me understand what isn't working and physically showing me how to fix it. River had a shallow latch and made it very hard for me to want to continue breastfeeding but Sheree was there, encouraging and coaching me along the way. It was one of the most fulfilling experiences of motherhood so far and I owe it all to her. Thank yous will never be enough for the appreciation I have of finding her!! <3" -BJ seen by Sheree Jernigan RN, IBCLC
I am so grateful I found Sheree! My breasts were so full I couldn't get my little one to latch on. I felt so defeated, raw and was in so much pain I wanted to give up. Luckily, Sheree came to my rescue! She was such a peaceful and reassuring presence in the midst of the storm. Giving me hope she helped me figure out breast feeding for the second time. She spent three hours with me at home and then was amazing at responding to my texts and calls! She was with me along the whole journey, not just for that one meeting. I am so glad I had her to guide me through the storm. I am now two weeks post delivery and breast feeding is easy! I also really appreciated the benefits of having a RN who is also a lactation consultant. I knew I was getting not only the wisdom of the lactation consultant training but also the huge wealth of knowledge that an RN can bring to the table!! I think that is what sets this practice apart and why I chose them. My husband is in the medical field and he thought it was an invaluable combination. Thank you Sheree!!
