"Breastfeeding is the most normal way to feed a baby, but there is technique and troubleshooting that is sometimes necessary. I have utilized Jaime's expertise in lactation countless times for my patients in L&D as well as my Doula and Midwifery clients, but even closer to my heart are the times we have chatted about issues when they have arisen with my now 19 month old nursling. Jaime is passionate about her calling, a calm voice, and welcomed ear when my mamas and I have needed it most."

"Even as a second-time breastfeeding mom, I am glad to have Jaime on my side. Her calm, straightforward nature and experience – both as a lactation consultant and breastfeeding mom herself – helped me troubleshoot when my newborn Polly was struggling to keep up with my forceful letdown. She has been a great resource as I transition to working outside the home full-time and maintaining my supply when pumping. I value Jaime as a professional, and I am thankful to call her my friend. I only wish I'd had her around the first time."

"I met Jaime for the first time just after the birth of my first child. I then learned that she was a friend of the doula
we had hired & a LC. This put me at ease since I was a first time
momma and wanted so badly to nurse my baby, Miriam. Miriam & I
struggled with the first couple months of nursing. Probably because I
had no idea what I was doing but also because Miriam had difficulty with
latch & so we were using a nipple shield. Jaime drove all the way
out to our farm 30 miles south of Little Rock to help me out. It was so
comforting to have this help in the comfort of our home, in bed, with my
baby. Jaime really helped me to calm down and realize that I was doing a
good job and was indeed feeding my baby. She also made me feel better
about using the nipple shield and encouraged me to try latch without the
shield about once/week or so as Miriam got bigger and developed more.
By the time M was 8 weeks old we were done with the nipple shield &
she was nursing like a champ! I'll never forget Jaime's help during that
first month. Miriam is now 10 months old and it seems like there was
never a time that we struggled with nursing. It comes with such ease and
is enjoyable for both of us. The following picture is one I will always
treasure since it's of my sweet girl, about 7 months old, frozen in a
time where nursing could solve all problems and I just love how her head
is slightly sweaty from our combined warmth."
