Pat,
I just wanted to reach out to you and say Thank You!! I can sincerely say that the time and money spent for my appointment with you has been the best choice of any I have made regarding my baby! Last night as I was nursing, I realized that Ino longer have the thought.. "oh no, I have to feed him again! anymore. the pain is going away and I am SLOWLY healing. Nursing is gradually becoming just a part of life and not something I dread! I absolutely believe I have you to thank for that! We are still using the new pacifiers that you gave us, bought a new breast pump and new pillows to properly nurse and we are good to go!  I would love for anyone having trouble to go see you!! I really would have quit breastfeeding if it hadn't been for your help.... hopefully others will go to you if they are having pain or trouble as well!! you were a blessing in my baby and my life!! you definitely have a gift!  THANK YOU!!! - Jaime

Pat,
You saw my wife yesterday and I just wanted to personal thank you for the help you gave her, I know breast feeding can take a lot out of you both physically and mentally and she was really down the day before meeting with you. Going from baby daughter getting 1 ounce to 3+ ounces while nursing is amazing and really helped her out a lot. We had gone to other people before and no one even worked on her latch…

And when I say this I mean many many (Other LC's, Breast feeding lunches ect…)people watched her nurse and said nothing was wrong with her latch and it was all oral and to my wife and I that was really upsetting cause for the past several months we have worked on the oral exercises and saw little results. You on the other hand took your time and really got at a large part of the issue and my wife's spirits were lifted and she is feeling much better even after 1 day.

Many dads don't understand how much work breastfeeding is I am not one of those people but even I can't truly understand how hard it is, I just know she has worked way to hard to give up and she was really getting upset that nothing was working. You changed all that and I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart what you do and the help you give is priceless! We are following all your advice and will continue to do so in the future we will do what ever it takes!!!!    -Robert

Pat,
I just wanted to say THANK YOU! I have been talking to you and seeing you since my son, Zack was only 24 hours old. I had nipple issues and you made sure that he got my milk one way or the other. You were there for me when on multiple occasions when I thought I couldn't do it. You let me use the hospital grade pump until mine came in. That was wonderful. I truly think I would have given up. I just love talking to you. Speaking of the pump; I love the Bailey Nurture III! It is so compacted and portable. I take it with me EVERYWHERE I go. I love that fact that you buy an insulted bag with an ice pack for it. I also love the fact that I can control how long the suction is. The company Bailey is so nice! I had to call them for a couple of things and a REAL person answered the phone! She was so nice and got me what I needed right away. No questions asked. I could go on and on about this pump. One last thing, if it wasn't for you and Bailey, Zack would defiantly be a formula baby. You were there for me, telling me I can do it and pumping is the same milk. I truthfully believe that Zack is healthier and happier because of you and this WONDERFUL pump.
Thank You Again,   Sarah and Zack

Hi Pat,
I just wanted to let you know that my plugged duct worked itself out after 3 days of doing what you told me to do. Thanks so much for your help. Also, an update on the baby, he was in the 20th percentile for weight before we saw you, and now he's in the 90th percentile. Thanks for your help with that as well. I can definitely say that I am confident that I have enough milk :)  Thanks again,  Jennifer

Hi, Mrs. Lindsey,
I just wanted to say thank you so very much for all your help on Monday. I took Bayleigh to see Dr. Franz for her appointment on Wednesday and she was back up to 8 lbs 8 oz. She was very impressed that I took it upon myself to seek assistance as I told her what a rough weekend I had with her. You have made all the difference with her feedings. She is so content, she seems to be much happier and is eating very well. The ointment you gave me has really helped with the healing process as well as her latching on correctly I have no more pain.
You are truly an amazing person and I just wish I had come to you in the very beginning!
Thank you again for everything!  Patti & Bayleigh

This is a quick email to further express what a joy it was to meet you yesterday!  You inspired me in more ways than you'd ever imagine and I haven't been able to stop raving about our time with you.  You truly blessed us with your very positive outlook and my milk supply is responding very well too!  We had an awesome breastfeeding session with the shield today and he fell asleep afterwards, he was on the breast for almost 1 hour! - Record time by the way :)  This all feels great and I'd like to thank you again for your part in helping to manifest what I've always believed in my heart - Making adequate milk for my baby!
With Warm Regards, Tejumade, Banji & Obatimilehin  P.S. My Mun says a Big Thank-you too!

Dear Pat,
Just wanted to let you know that we went to the doctor on Thursday to have Olivia's two-week check-up. She gained back her weight and actually went past it by an oz (9lbs 12 oz). She is doing so good. We are slowly trying to make her realize that day is day and night is night ;-).  We are so grateful for all your help!   May God continue to bless you and others through you.   Maja

“At this very special time of the year, we think about the important people who have made a difference in our lives.  Taylor is such a special blessing to us.  We want to give her love, comfort and joy at every moment of her life.  You have helped me through the some times difficult stages of motherhood reassuring me that I was doing fine.  It has been so reassuring for me to know that you are there at any hour of the day.  Including sleepless nights! I wish every mother had someone so special like you for support and kindness.  You are an angel in my eyes!  And, you have made a difference in our daughter's life!  God bless you!” Tammy

"This is a long overdue "Thank You!" for your help over two years ago. With your help and my will I am glad to say Cassandra and I are still enjoying a wonderful nursing relationship that feeds both our souls. Please know that you are doing good work that extends beyond filling a babe's tummy. Nursing opened so many doors to me - from feeling the ultimate joy of motherhood to cool friends and even a job as a peer counselor. I can't say I would've given up without you but you gave me the "tools" to get the job done. Best money I ever spent!  I think of you often, woman. You're a saint in my eyes!"  Lisa

"I just wanted to e-mail you and Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. We have had a wonderful day of feeding and spending time with Taylor. Michele is having no trouble and Taylor is eating on a tight two hour schedule. I thought I'd let you know that when we went to the doctor Friday she was already at 7lbs 1 oz, just 2 oz off her birth weight. Not bad for three days. Your knowledge, kindness and patience were a blessing to us. Many thanks again!!!"  Michele, Taylor and Mark

Fantastic Lactation Consultant!!  I saw Pat 3 years ago when I had difficulty with breast feeding my daughter. She was spectacular. She diagnosed my difficulty. She referred me to a speech and language pathologist. This solved my problems and I was able to breast feed my daughter 15 months and am currently breast feeding my son. She is a wonderful resource for the community. She is very good at assisting in insurance reimbursement for her services. She also has pumps for rent and purchase. She also has some reading material for rent and purchase as well as some clothing and slings.

BREASTFEEDING
God created it,
Science confirms it,
Nature celebrates it

"Breastfeeding is the most precious gift
a mother can give her infant.
 When there is illness or malnutrition,  
it may be a lifesaving gift;
when there is poverty,
it may be the only gift"
