“Teddie has been monumental in my breastfeeding career from my newborn in 2018 until present. She is my go to for anything breastfeeding related. Teddie and I were able to work together on latching, learning hunger cues and navigating all the newness of breastfeeding with my first baby. For me it was an invaluable service. Such an outpouring of love. I truly believe this is one of the most valuable services postpartum for people nursing babies. The understanding, knowledge and calm she provided in a very raw and vulnerable part of my life with a fresh new baby still astounds me. Teddie goes above and beyond for her patients and I have felt cared by her in some of my most vulnerable moments in my breastfeeding journey. Recently, I met with Teddie to talk about concerns with supply while in another country without my babies. We also discussed weaning in the future and some anxieties around that. Teddie again has provided options and with those options always comes calm with knowing how to move forward. I will forever turn to Teddie for her expertise as I feel welcomed, known and understood when she collaborates with me to find what works for our family. I’m a big nerd and appreciate all the valuable knowledge she imparts. I can confidently say that Teddie was the pivotal support person I needed to have been able to breastfeed my girls from the beginning and now tandem nursing an almost 5 year old and a two year old. My gratitude to this professional, caring and passionate IBCLC. Teddie, I cannot thank you enough. Your support propelled me successfully into this beautiful bonding I have with my two baby girls.”
