Kendra was an incredibly important part of my breastfeeding journey and don't think I would have made it without her! She is extremely patient, kind and most of all encouraging - my baby and I both have anatomical challenges which made our journey objectively tough and I never once felt like I was going to fail. In fact, with her help we thrived and I met my initial goal of sustaining my baby without formula supplement. I even consulted with Kendra when I was ready to move away from feeding at the breast and wanted to exclusively pump. She was equally supportive of that decision and I didn't feel shamed into continuing to breastfeed. Kendra also provided assistance between our in-person sessions via text. I cannot recommend Kendra enough and if/when I have another baby she will be one of the first people I call!

Kendra is absolutely wonderful. She is very organized, responds quickly, knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. If you need any assistance with breastfeeding, I would highly recommend her. She works with you and helps create a plan that works for the whole family and your specific medical situation. She is supportive and non-judgmental. I doubt there is a lactation consultant better than her - and I'm a choosy medical professional!

What can I say, Kendra is simply amazing. Non-judgemental, warm, inviting, and knowledgeable. She not only recognizes and assists with your breastfeeding issues, but goes above and beyond in her care plan. Kendra includes the whole family in supporting mothers during this time.
